STATEMENT BY NANCY J. VICTORY, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information ON SPECTRUM AUCTION POSTPONEMENT

"I welcome Congressís action last night to delay the pending auctions of spectrum in the 700 MHz bands. It showed that sound spectrum policy triumphed over counterproductive deadlines. With the additional time, the FCC, the broadcasters and the potential bidders for the spectrum should work diligently to remove the uncertainties regarding when the spectrum can best be put to use for American consumers. The Administration stands ready to assist in that effort."
