Legislative session delivers big wins for broadcasters
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
Texas broadcasters scored several key victories in this year's regular legislative session which ended Monday – just minutes before Gov. Rick Perry called a special session to resolve the state's ongoing battle over maps for House, Senate and Congressional districts. "This was one of the most successful sessions ever for broadcasters and our newspaper colleagues," said TAB President Oscar Rodriguez. "Lawmakers passed a number of bills critically important to our ability to do business while also addressing some major tax and infrastructure concerns that are vital to our state's continued economic well-being."(TAB members only.)

2013 regulation fees: The FCC proposes a couple of alternatives
CommLawBlog
One of the time-honored rites of spring — at least at the FCC — is the release, every April or May, of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking setting out the schedule of regulatory fees the Commission thinks it may impose on all regulatees come August-September. But this year is different. Instead of providing one set of proposed fees, the Commission has given us a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking laying out two sets of possible fees — because it's in the process of a much-needed update of its calculation methodology, and it's still not sure as to whether the new approach is exactly right and, even if it is, whether that new approach should be applied this year.
