You'll need to go back and find out the actual answer, but here it is...HDTVFanAtic said:Seem these rules that everyone is so upset about were put in the 90s under a Democratic President and a Democratic Congress......hmmmmm.
SHVA of 1988, signed by President Reagan with Congress fully Democrat - enabled distant networks
SHVA of 1994, signed by President Clinton with Congress fully Democrat - only extended the expiring distant network license
SHVIA of 1999, signed by President Clinton with Congress fully Republican - authorized local into local and extended the expiring distant network license
SHVERA of 2004, signed by President Bush with Congress fully Republican - added signficantly-viewed channels and extended the distant network license, added the no-distant-if-local-available, added a digital distant section.
And Pete DeFazio's office needs a reality check.
