COMMERCE OFFICIAL LEAVING BUSH TEAM [SOURCE: New York Times] via Benton Michael D. Gallagher, the top Bush administration official for telecommunications issues, said on Monday that he had decided to step down early next year. Gallagher, the head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration at the Commerce Department, has played a major role in negotiations between the wireless industry and the Pentagon over steps to free valuable radio spectrum for use by the industry.
He has also led the administration's efforts to beat back proposals by some countries for tighter regulation over the Internet. Earlier this year, Mr. Gallagher was a contender to head the Federal Communications Commission, ultimately losing to Kevin J. Martin. Mr. Gallagher said he would take time off, probably beginning in January, to consider his next career move. He said he expected to remain in Washington.
