Don’t miss this NLC webinar – The FCC and Cable Franchising: What Cities Need to Know

Posted on August 23, 2019 by Dene Westbrook

Join the NLC this upcoming Tuesday, August 27th at 2pm for an overview on the new FCC preemptions on cable franchising.

On August 1, the Federal Communications Commission voted to dramatically preempt and change how state and local governments handle cable franchising. Join NLC for this webinar to understand what was in the FCC order, when it goes into effect, how it might impact your city, and what cities and municipal leagues are doing to fight back against this federal overreach.
