Senators Signing US Senator Edward Markey’s Letter in Support of Community Media

ACM thanks the US Senators who are signing Senator Ed Markey’s letter to the FCC, disapproving the FNPRM on Cable Franchising (Docket No 05-311) because of its effects on local communities and community media:

  • Sen Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren (MA);
  • Sen Tammy Baldwin (WI);
  • Richard Blumenthal (CT);
  • Maggie Hassan (NH);
  • Ben Cardin (MD);
  • Gary Peters (MI);
  • Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley (OR);
  • Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy (VT).

And a huge thank you to all the ACM members who reached out to their Senate delegations this month to support the letter.

We’ll talk about the proceeding this Thursday, November 1st at 4:00 pm ET during our monthly Public Policy Briefign Call for ACM members. Let me know if you want to be on the call.
