FCC begins rules review

The FCC has begun reviewing rules it adopted between 1935 and 1993.

The purpose of the federally mandated review — to occur over the next year — is “to determine whether such rules should be continued without change, or should be amended or rescinded.” A public comment period is open until Sept. 5. Critics of any covered rule can mount a new challenge to abolish or change it.

Within the scope of the review are many rules affecting cable operators — including the areas of must-carry, rate regulation and ownership. Among the broadcast issues are rules involving emergency alerts, antenna towers and bidding procedures.
