In response to the 7/24 scheduled hearing on the “LPTV and Translator Preservation Act of 2014” by the House Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton: “NAB appreciates Congressman Barton’s work to produce a bill that recognizes the important service LPTVs and translators provide to millions of Americans. As the FCC proceeds with the incentive auction rulemaking, the Commission must be evaluating more than just broadband when it looks at implementing the statute. The Spectrum Act is designed to achieve a balance between broadcast and broadband, and this bill serves as a strong reminder of that balance.”
