ORLANDO — The federal government is vetting Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s picks for six open seats on the First Responder Network Authority’s (FirstNet) board, National Telecommunications and Information Administration head David J. Redl told reporters today at the Competitive Carriers Association’s Annual Convention here. Mr. Redl noted that candidates must fill out forms on any conflicts of interest, adding, “We’re in the process of finalizing the secretary’s picks through the process.” He said he did not want to guess when that process might be completed.
