WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to passage of legislation to reauthorize the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act by the House Judiciary Committee, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
""NAB thanks Chairmen Goodlatte and Coble for guiding through the House Judiciary Committee a sensible, non-controversial STELA reauthorization bill ensuring that satellite TV subscribers without access to local TV signals can continue receiving popular programming from broadcast TV networks. NAB strongly supports this practical approach to STELA."
