Publish date:

It looks like the Senate Communications Subcommittee's
hearing on the state of video, which
B&C reported
was tentatively
scheduled for May 14, has gotten a little less tentative.

The Senate Commerce Committee Communications Subcommittee
has scheduled its planned video oversight hearing for May 14 at 10:30 a.m.-12
p.m., according to a source.

National Association of Broadcasters president Gordon Smith
and NCTA president Michael Powell are both expected to testify.

It is one of a series of "state of"
hearings announced
earlier by Sen. Mark Pryor
(D-Ark.) new chair of what is expected to be an
active subcommittee.
