New York (AP) The spectrum television package was designed to give a boost to a struggling economy and give companies and states a boost in financing to help the economy recover.
The package, dubbed the Spectrum Initiative, would help states, companies and others finance their investments in the wireless industry and spur investments by the telecommunications industry.
This is the second time in less than a year that the Spectrum initiative has been revived by Congress.
The first time, it was shelved after the Obama administration failed to reach agreement with the carriers on a long-term spectrum strategy.
The Spectrum Initiative would help with $1 trillion stimulus to help a struggling country and provide support for states and localities to get financing to make investments in their industries.
President Donald Trump has said the Spectrum package is vital to help stimulate the economy.
A bipartisan group of lawmakers, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, have proposed a bill to revive the Spectrum program.
The bill has bipartisan support in the House of Representatives.
But it is likely to face fierce opposition in the Senate, where Democrats and Republicans are divided over how much more to spend on infrastructure and the environment.
