ATVA Statement on Senate Judiciary STELA Bill

Washington, D.C. June 10, 2014– In response to the introduction of the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA) Reauthorization by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the American Television Alliance released the following statement:

In the past 20 years, there has never been a ‘clean’ version of STELA because our video laws cannot keep up with changing technology. The retransmission consent system is now more broken than ever and STELA is the best opportunity to help provide consumers with relief from skyrocketing retrans fees and blackouts. We look forward to working with all four House and Senate committees of jurisdiction for meaningful retransmission consent reform.
