New Congressional Legislation for PEG Stations Needs Your Help

As a result of recent rulings by the FCC and the adoption of Statewide Franchises in several states which have compromised the signal quality, financial support and availability of PEG channels, Congressional Representative Tammy Baldwin (WI-D), introduced HR 3745 "To amend the Communications Act of 1934” "to provide for carriage and display of public, educational, and government channels in a manner consistent with commercial channels, and for other purposes".
