WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on Tuesday (3/22) will conduct an Executive Session that will consider 12 items on the agenda. The fifth order of business is S.3405, the “Low Power Protection Act.”
Sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), the bill has bipartisan support but just three co-sponsors. The March 22 hearing could change that. For the LPTV Broadcasters Association, any support of the legislation requires an important markup — one that would greatly increase the number of stations eligible to apply for Class A status.
