Cable Franchising and the FCC

Event Description

Deadline to Register: November 20, 2019

The FCC released a new order addressing cable franchising which became effective in late September 2019.  The Order addressed cable franchise fees, mixed use networks, and state law preemption. The Order raises interesting legal issues related to authorized federal agency action, ex parte communications, preemption of local and state government, and statutory construction. The Order has been appealed and a stay has been requested of the FCC. We will review the procedural history before the FCC, prior litigation, the substance of the Order, and an update on the appeal.

*Lunch will be included. Lunch, registration, and networking will begin at 11:45 am. The program will begin at 12:00pm and goes until 1:00 pm.
