TAB advances DC agenda
-Major policy rewrites on tap

Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
As Congress prepares to consider wide-ranging updates to the federal telecommunications and copyright laws, as well as the tax code, TAB is working with the Texas delegation to ensure they understand the impact of some potential proposals on their local communities and broadcasters. Despite just recently concluding a contentious five-year renewal of satellite TV legislation, pay-TV providers continue to push for dismantling the retransmission consent system. This and other key federal provisions, such as syndication exclusivity and the pay-TV basic tier, ensure Texas communities have access to local news, emergency information and top-caliber national programming free, over-the-air and in full HD. All could be changed in a potential rewrite of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.

FAA's drone rules offer hope — but some limits — on journalists
Alicia Wagner Calzada, Haynes and Boone, LLP
In mid-February, the FAA announced its long-awaited proposed rules for the regulation of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS or sUAVs), commonly referred to as drones. The proposed rules were far less restrictive than some possibilities that had been tossed about by speculators, bloggers and behind the scenes, and initial reactions from journalism advocates were cautiously optimistic. But the proposal would provide limits, and the rules do not go into effect right away, so it will still be some time before Texas journalists will be able to operate unmanned aircraft with the blessing of the FAA.
