Powell praises NCTA on EEO rules

Publish date:

Federal Communications Commission chairman Michael Powell has publicly
commended the National Cable Television Association's board of directors for
committing to voluntarily uphold the FCC's equal-employment-opportunity rules,
which were suspended after a D.C. court found them constitutionally suspect.

In a prepared statement, Powell said, 'Diversity in the work force is good
policy and good business, and much can be accomplished through this kind of
voluntary program.'
