A bill has been introduced in Congress that would allow more than two FCC commissioners to meet privately as long as at least one commissioner from each party is present and the substance of the meeting is released to the public, reports BROADCASTING AND CABLE's JOHN EGGERTON.
H.R. 1467, the FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION Collaboration Act, is sponsored by Rep. BART STUPAK (D-MI) and would provide an exception to sunshine rules prohibiting the commissioners from meeting in private. The bill would expire in five years unless reauthorized by a vote of Congress.
