July 9 — Rep. Howard Coble (R-N.C.) introduced legislation aimed at renewing the nation's satellite laws for another five years.
Members of the HouseJudiciaryCommittee plan to mark up the Satellite Television Access Reauthorization Act (H.R. 5036) July 10 at 10:00 a.m. in 2141 Rayburn.
The two-page bill, which circulated on July 8 and was introduced the next day, seeks to reauthorize the 2010 Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA), which ensures that 1.5 million mostly rural Americans will be able to view distant broadcast signals they otherwise wouldn't be able to receive. The bill is nearly identical to the Senate Judiciary's recently approved Satellite Television Access Reauthorization Act (S. 2454).
The National Association of Broadcasters has urged lawmakers to seek a narrow STELA reauthorization that preserves the laws that govern negotiations between networks and pay-TV companies for the right to retransmit broadcast programming.
