A Look at Some of the Key Media Bills Being Introduced

November 26, 2013

Congress is winding down for the year, making it highly unlikely that any new laws will get passed; even nominations are having a tough time. There is still a question of whether the Senate, out the first week in December, will be able to vote on the nomination of Terrell McSweeny for an open slot on the Federal Trade Commission. But that doesn’t mean pols will sit on their hands. There’s an election in 2014, and lawmakers, particularly those in tough races, need to show they are pursuing legislation on myriad topics, some of which could impact media and marketing. As the session comes to a close, several lawmakers have introduced bills on perennial issues, testing the waters for support and laying down markers for what could move next year.
