"A clause buried deep in the 565 pages of the 2012 Defense
Authorization act passed in December bars the Federal Communications
Commission from approving systems that interfere in any way with
military GPS. The bill also tells the FCC to supply Congress with a
final copy of the report from its working group, which late last year
issued a preliminary report warning that a system proposed by telecoms
firm LightSquared of Reston, Virginia would cause serious
interference."
