FirstNet Board Announcement Expected Tomorrow

The Commerce Department tomorrow is expected to announce multiple First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) board appointments.  One of the 12 nonpermanent board member seats is currently vacant, and appointments of four other nonpermanent board members were due to expire in December, after being extended from last August.  They are the appointments of Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank, former Vermont governor James Douglas, retired telecom industry executive Ed Reynolds, and Hennepin County, Minn., Sheriff Richard Stanek. A delay in the confirmation of National Telecommunications and Information Administration head David Redl seems to have pushed back action on the board seats.
