Trump Establishes Telecom Foreign Ownership Review Committee
President Trump has issued an executive order establishing the Committee for the Assessment of Foreign Participation in the United States Telecommunications Services Sector, which will be composed of the secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security and the attorney general, and which will review applications for licenses and license transfers before the FCC, as well as existing licenses, for national security and law enforcement concerns raised by foreign participation in the U.S. telecom service sector.
The Defense, Homeland Security, and Justice departments previously conducted reviews of applications through a less formal "Team Telecom" process that has been criticized by industry and others for its lack of deadlines which has sometimes led to lengthy waits.
