/// Dems Find Fault With Draft to Reauthorize Satellite Bill
A proposed bill to reauthorize the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act, or Stela for short, may please broadcasters, cable, and satellite companies, but politics on the communications and technology subcommittee could derail the current draft. Democrats who worked on an earlier draft with Republican Steve Scalise (R-N.J.) made it clear that they didn’t like and weren’t prepared to support the GOP leadership’s draft bill. A lot of political maneuvering went on behind the scenes before communications and technology chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.), who has been predisposed to a simple reauthorization, released a draft bill that included a few goodies for cable at the end of last week.
