The CAP Act

Sen. Tammy Baldwin has introduced the Community Access Preservation Act (S. 1244) to enhance support for community television on cable systems.

The bill would have a significant effect on Wisconsin because it would restore the ability of municipalities to assess a PEG fee on cable subscribers to support local programming.  The bill would also enable municipalities to request video providers to list the names of access channels and their program schedules on the electronic program guide. This would make a huge difference to local channels, enabling viewers to see access channel schedules as they see the schedules of other channels and record programs for later viewing:
