Bill Establishing Statewide Franchise for Video Service Providers Before Governor
The Digital Infrastructure and Video Competition Act of 2006 (AB 2987, Nunez and Levine) awaits the Governor's signature or veto. AB 2987 establishes a statewide franchising procedure for video service providers to be administered by the California Public Utilities Commission and preempts local government franchising authority. The bill regulates several elements of the franchise, including franchise fees, public, educational and governmental (PEG) carriage and capital support, and non-discriminatory access to service.
If the Governor signs the bill, we will post a more detailed summary. To review AB 2987, click here.
