   whether such income, when combined in aggregate with the fees
   authorized under 47 U.S.C. 1428(a), will be sufficient to recoup
   FirstNet's total expenses, but not exceed the amount necessary to carry

   U.S.C. 1401 et seq., including but not limited to capital reserve
   funds, operating reserve funds, maintenance reserve funds, and
   improvement reserve funds.

   Non-fee-based income received by FirstNet means FirstNet's receipt of
   money from any source, transaction, entity, or any other means allowed
   under 47 U.S.C. 1401 et seq., other than those receipts described above
   in the definition of “fee.”

   executes its duties under 47 U.S.C. 1428(c).
