FCC: Reply Comments Filed by CLC et al. regarding Expansion of Online Public File Obligations
The Campaign Legal Center, joined by Common Cause and the Sunlight Foundation, filed reply comments urging the FCC to reject a suggestion by the National Association of Broadcasters to limit enforcement complaints to only viewers (and listeners) who live in the viewing area and to require stations to use the FCC website. Those comments also reiterated support for ensuring any waivers provided to radio stations are based on appropriate criteria and for requiring the data filed to be in a standardized, searchable database, instead of pdfs. The groups are represented by the Institute for Public Representation of Georgetown University Law Center.
