House approves NTIA reauthorization

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The House of Representatives voted to reauthorize the National Telecommunications Information Administration for the first time in 30 years.

Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, led legislation to provide the NTIA with an improved ability to execute to a national spectrum strategy, coordinate on AI and cybersecurity issues and update its mission and functions.

Congress provided $48.2 billion to the NTIA in 2023 to deploy broadband to people without internet or with low internet capabilities.
