HOUSE SCHEDULES COPE VOTE
"House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) has released the agenda for this week and it includes time for consideration of HR 5252, the Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and Enhancement Act of 2006 [COPE], sponsored by House Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton (T-TX). The bill's main aim is to pave the way for the creation of national video franchises. In April the Commerce Committee approved the bill 42 to 12. "
