Democratic and Republican Congressional leaders reached agreement on a $820 billion spending bill containing funds for several government agencies. The appropriations measure includes language approving a 39% TV audience cap. The FCC in June passed 45%, but that has been blocked while the new media ownership rules are debated in federal court. The 39% is a compromise reached by lawmakers last year, before the new session of Congress began this week. The bill is expected to pass Thursday, before lawmakers leave Washington for the weekend.
