Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels & Community Media Centers like Marin TV

UPDATE August 2019
The FCC voted 3-2 (R-D) to approve the draft order 621 today. That was no surprise. The final order will be released in about a week - we'll know more then. Some interpretation of the order as it now stands:

1) FCC commissioner O’reilly pushed hard for PEG transport fees (use of fiber line between PEG and Cable operator) to be deducted from Franchise Fees (FF) - this may included in the final order. If so - CMCM could be charged for our connection to Comcast used to deliver the channels.

2) Values determined by cable companies for iNets and free cable drops will now be deducted from FF. This has no impact on CMCM since AT&T eliminated those public benefits 10 years ago when they passed the CA State Video Franchise (DIVCA). Note: Having decimated PEG in 21 states, AT&T has since ceased their rollout of U-Verse and now sells satellite TV service.

Sandy is a native of Chiapas, Mexico, who was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.
