Hartland, Hartford, Hanover, Lebanon and Norwich impacted
Earlier this month, I posted about a proposed FCC rule that could mean the end of public access television for Norwich, as well as for Hartland, Hartford, Hanover, and Lebanon. See Proposed FCC Rule Could End Public Access TV In 5 Towns. The FCC is proposing to redefine the calculation of franchise fees in a way that would tremendously reduce that source of funding for the Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) stations in Vermont as well as those across the United States.
Tell them that you "feel strongly against the proposed FCC Docket 05-311 rule change that would allow cable companies to offset their in-kind services against the PEG franchise fees, tremendously reducing funding for public access TV and thus reducing the local government, education and public communication that is so vital to the hyper local intercommunication in your community.
