At The Verge, Adi Robertson reports on President Obama’s latest executive order:

President Barack Obama has signed an executive order that changes the way the US deals with telecommunications in the event of an emergency. “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions” codifies the steps that agencies need to take in order to make sure that communications networks will keep running in the event of a natural disaster or national security emergency.

As Robertson notes, the bulk of the order merely unifies and modernizes current policies.
