FCC chief planner set to leave

Chief planner of the Federal Communications Commission Paul de Sa will leave in February, Chairman Julius Genachowski said in a statement.

Since joining the FCC in 2009, de Sa has served as Chief of the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis, reviewing various issues such as mergers, broadband expansion and spectrum issues.

“Paul’s rare combination of business insight, technical expertise, and policy smarts has made him indispensable to me and the agency as we’ve worked to unleash innovation and bring the benefits of broadband to all Americans," Genachowski said.

According to Senator Grassley, he was key to the FCC's decision to bend its rules for permitted use of the MSS band, bringing about the potential for GPS receiver inteference. The Senator wants to talk to him before he leaves, but the FCC says he is 'Unavailable'. I guess that is at least consistent with their resonse to the Senator's request for FCC government documents related to Lightsquared: "They are, uh, unavailable. At least to you, Senator."
