House Judiciary Passes 'Clean' Satellite Bill

July 10, 2014

With no amendments and little discussion, the House Judiciary Committee Thursday approved on a voice vote a "clean" Satellite Television Access Reauthorization Act of 2014 (H.R. 5036), which extends the compulsory license in the expiring Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA) of 2010. It also extends the FCC's authority to require good faith retransmission consent negotiations.
