Senators Joe Lieberman and John McCain yesterday introduced the Broadband for First Responders Act of 2011, legislation that would allocate additional spectrum to public safety.  The following statement may be attributed to Tim McKone, AT&T’s Executive Vice President of Federal Relations:

“Senators Lieberman and McCain have introduced a thoughtful and comprehensive bill that lays out groundwork for first responders to be able to effectively communicate during times of need.  AT&T is very encouraged by the growing bipartisan support for meeting the critical needs of the public safety community.”
