NAB salutes Senate Judiciary Committee passage of STELA


NAB / National Association of BroadcastersIn response to passage of legislation to reauthorize the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA), NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith said:

“NAB salutes the efforts of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Leahy and Ranking Member Grassley in forging passage of a unanimous, bipartisan and non-controversial reauthorization of the STELA bill. In an era of divided government, the Senate Judiciary Committee approach to STELA offers a clear path to final passage of a satellite TV bill this year. America’s local broadcasters pledge our strong support for this bill and look forward to its final adoption by the full Senate.”
