Hiram Scott Speech in Boston on National Day of Out(R)age
On Wednesday, May 24th, thousands of people in cities across the country protested the proposed federal legislation House Bill 5252 and Senate Bill 2686. The proposed legislation could curb local control over video franchises, negatively impact thousands of local Public, Educational and Governmental Access channels, allow red-lining in low-income and rural communities and jeopardize the openness of the internet by removing ‘net neutrality’ provisions designed to promote competition.
