FCC urged to streamline station contest rule disclosure
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
TAB this week filed comments with the FCC praising its effort to modernize the station contest rule disclosure by allowing stations to transfer disclosure from on-air to online. The move would be a long overdue solution to the problems caused by forcing broadcasters to speed-read or flash contest terms in limited on-air time and space, and the agency should resist trying to micromanage how stations cite or post the rules under the new regime. Under the current rule, broadcasters must balance the risk of omitting "material" terms of a contest against the risk of audience loss if the announcement is too long and detailed.

A January Texas presidential primary?
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
If a San Antonio lawmaker gets his way, Texas voters will cast primary ballots in January 2016, despite the fact that doing so will penalize Texas Republicans at the party's national convention. Texans are currently set to cast ballots in the 2016 presidential primaries on March 1, but HB 1214 by state Rep. Lyle Larson, R-San Antonio, would move the date up to Jan. 26, ahead of every other state except Iowa and New Hampshire. Larson says he wants Texas to have more of a say as to who the eventual nominee may be for each party.
