Republican: House won't take up online video bill

November 20, 2013

The House has no plans to consider legislation from Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) to bolster online video services, according to Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio).

"When I look at what's happening in our committee — full committee and also in the subcommittee — I probably would say that's not going to see very much work on our side, if any," said Latta, the vice chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee's subcommittee on Communications and Technology, during an interview on C-SPAN's "The Communicators," set to air Saturday.
