DEJA VU – In the 15 years that have passed us by, I thought it would be interesting to look back on the debates that surrounded spectrum issues. This is the first article that came up when I launched my search. Interesting to look back and see the battle lines of then versus today’s. Remind me, what has changed? – MisterDTV
CLINTON BUDGET SEES $36B FROM AUCTIONS
WASHINGTON-The Clinton administration’s balanced budget plan calls for $36 billion from expanded auctions over the next five years, a projection that raises key wireless policy questions.
The initiative, which includes selling toll-free 888 telephone numbers but is otherwise vague, was included in the $1.7 trillion spending package for fiscal 1998 the White House sent to Congress last Thursday.
Republicans attacked the Clinton budget plan for delaying tough spending cuts until after the president leaves office, while putting Clinton in a good position to negotiate a balanced budget in his second term.
