The NAB says support is gaining in the U.S. House for legislation that would fight off what broadcasters see as illegal encroachment by satcasters.
The legislation by Reps. Chip Pickering and Gene Green would "preserve local broadcast emergency and other services and to require the FCC to conduct rulemaking for that purpose," NAB said. The association says the effort has 84 cosponsors.
"Many of those who have recently signed on did so after a grassroots effort by broadcasters," it stated in a newsletter. And it called again on radio broadcasters to lobby their representatives on the issue.
