​​On December 7, NRECA joined with a broad coalition of entities, including the Utilities Technology Council (UTC), the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the American Public Power Association (APPA), the American Gas Association (AGA), the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the American Petroleum Institute (API), the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) (collectively Petitioners), to file a petition for rulemaking and request for stay with the FCC in regard to the agency's order opening the 6 GHz band to unlicensed use. The petition urged the FCC to adopt a rulemaking to develop new rules for 6 GHz low-power indoor (“LPI") devices that are proven to prevent interference to licensed microwave incumbents in the band, establish a process for licensed users can recover the cost of mitigating and resolving interference, and conduct independent real-world interference testing. In the separate request for stay, the FCC was urged to issue a temporary stay of authorization of any unlicensed 6 GHz low power indoor (“LPI") devices, including the marketing, sale and importation of such devices already authorized by the agency as well as any such devices going forward.​
