Several Congressional leaders and state officials are urging the FCC to move forward with LightSquared's review. Last week Rep. John Conyers sent a letter to FCC chairman Julius Genachowski saying "I write to express concern about delays in the approval process involving LightSquared's proposed 4G-LTE wireless broadband network," Conyers wrote in a letter sent last week. "I strongly urge the Commission to move with urgency to fully test potential solutions to the LightSquared-GPS interference issue employing transparent, fact-based methodologies, common-sense standards and independent testing facilities."

There have been a total of seven Congressional leaders that have filed letters with the FCC in support of LightSquared. Only time will tell if these letters have any affect as LightSquared is facing an uphill battle with the GPS industry claiming interference with their navigation hardware. "I think there is a common perception that the political weight is on the side of the GPS industry, because they have been effective in getting their constituents to say all kinds of scary things about what will happen if our network is buit," said Jeff Carlisle, Vice president for for regulatory affairs and public affairs for LightSquared.
