A bipartisan group of members has re-introduced the Federal Spectrum Incentive Act (H.R. 1641) in the House of Representatives. The bill, if enacted, would amend the National Telecommunications and Information Administration  (NTIA) Organization Act to provide incentives for the reallocation of Federal Government spectrum for commercial use.  H.R. 1641 would create a new Federal Spectrum Incentive Auction Fund so participating government agencies could access a portion of the revenue from the auctions of their relinquished spectrum.  The bill was introduced by Reps. Guthrie (R-KY); Matsui (D-CA); Walden (R-OR) and Eshoo (D-CA). The House Energy and Commerce Committee approved a nearly identical bill last Congress.
