Black Caucus Voice Concern Over FCC Proposal

Oct 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Twenty-seven Congressional Black Caucus members expressed concern to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin this week over recent FCC proposals that would dictate how broadcasters serve their communities, thus placing additional regulatory burdens on radio and TV stations, TVNewsday reports. The proposed regulation has caused 28 senators and more than 150 House members to send letters to the FCC. A letter signed by 26 House members, including Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., and Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., said, “If adopted, these proposals would impose a significant financial hardship on minority broadcasters, with little tangible benefit to the public.”
