Statement: “Next Generation Television Marketplace Act”

Background: Today, Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) introduced the “Next Generation Television Marketplace Act” of 2018.

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:

“With the introduction of the ‘Next Generation Television Marketplace Act’ of 2018, Whip Scalise reinvigorated the conversation about video marketplace regulations. The video landscape is constantly shifting and consumers need – demand – modern rules that govern how we access and pay for video content. This is an important, contemporary conversation, and hopefully the introduction of this legislation will spur further discussion on how best to apply modern, practical rules to this dynamic and evolving industry.”
