(From Media Policy Blog)
Rock Louis, Community Media Producer, understands the impact of the latest crop of telecommunications legislation on Community Media Centers all over the country.
The following bills will be voted on in the Spring of '06:
S1504 Broadband Investment and Consumer Choice Act of 2005;
HR 3146, Video Choice Act of 2005;
S1349 Video Choice Act of 2005;
HR214, Advanced Internet Communications Services Act of 2005 .
Rock, as he as known locally, is an example of the dozens of producers who will lose their outlet if some of the language in these bills goes unchanged.
Hear what Rock has to say about the situation.
