A bill that would permanently authorize the FirstNet Authority was reintroduced yesterday in the House of Representatives by Rep. Lizzie Fletcher (R-Tex.) as the entity charged with building and maintaining a nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) awaits its FCC license renewal and a potential sunset in 2027.

When Congress passed legislation that established the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority), the law included a sunset provision that would become effective 15 years later, unless Congress took further action. Fletcher’s bill—H.R. 3366, the “FirstNet Reauthorization Act”—proposes to take such action, seeking to make the FirstNet Authority’s authorization permanent.
