Busy day in Washington


The House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet looks into three bills today, two of which may have a significant impact on the broadcasting business. H.R.1084, the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM), H.R.1147, the Local Community Radio Act of 2009 are on the schedule along with H.R.1133, the Family Telephone Connection Protection Act of 2009. Meanwhile, across town the NAB will be hosting a major teleconference on final preparations for the DTV transition. We’ll have full reports on both events.
