FCC: Comments Filed by CLC et al. regarding Expansion of Online Public File Obligations
As part of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) consideration of extending online filing requirements to cable, satellite and radio providers, the Campaign Legal Center, joined by Common Cause and the Sunlight Foundation, filed comments on March 16. The original comments, urged the Commission to extend the online filing requirements to cable, satellite and radio providers, to base any exemption for commercial radio stations according to political advertising revenue rather than seize and to implement formatting requirements so the data will be put to its best use. The groups are represented by the Institute for Public Representation of the Georgetown University Law Center.
