Subcommittee members marked up pending legislation, “Communications Opportunity, Promotion and Enhancement Act of 2006,” considered amendments and voted to approve it by 27 to 4. This bipartisan legislation coordinates three mutually important principles. First, it establishes a national franchise option to streamline entry into the marketplace and faster delivery of more competitive video choices for consumers. Second, the bill not only preserves the option for cable operators and localities to strike their own local franchise deals in lieu of a national franchise, but also preserves, in the national franchise, critically important elements of the legacy local franchise framework. Third, the bill seeks to create a level regulatory playing field for all wireline video providers, given the competitive nature of the marketplace, so that consumers, and not the government, will choose the winners and losers in the marketplace. close
