STELA Hearings Update

From Kelly Cole, NAB

The link below provides a summary of the two STELA hearings that took place this week.

The first was on September 10th in the House Judiciary Committee and the second was September 11th in the House Energy & Commerce Committee.

As expected, coming on the heels of the CBS-TWC dispute, both of the hearings included a great deal of conversation about retransmission consent. Of note, it was reported that Communications and Internet Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden said that he expects to circulate a discussion draft on STELA “no later than the first quarter of next year.”
