Vermont legislation potentially harmful to broadcasters


NAB / National Association of BroadcastersSue Keenom, NAB SVP/State Associations and Board Relations, sent an email out 5/29 to all state broadcaster associations about a bill has been passed through the Vermont legislature that is potentially harmful to television broadcasters.  It would require each commercial broadcasting station doing business with a Vermont cable company to report to the Attorney General any fees charged for program content retransmitted on the cable network under a retransmission consent agreement. The bill is now sitting on the Governor’s desk waiting to be signed – or vetoed. See her email here:
