Scalise Added To ACA Summit Speaker List
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), considered to be a voice for communications policy reform on Capitol Hill, has been added to the speaker roster for the American Cable Association’s (ACA) 20th Washington Summit, set for March 12-14 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C. The congressman is chief sponsor of the Next Generation Television Marketplace Act that could, among other things, repeal the retransmission consent provisions of the 1992 Cable Act. He will speak March 13, from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Also on the three-day agenda are Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) and FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai; the commissioner will go head-to-head with ACA’s Matt Polka on March 13.
