Members of the House of Representatives debated an amendment which would develop a ratings system for TV programs, much like the one for movies. In addition to the ratings system, the amendment required that all TV’s contain an electronic chip, called a "V-chip", which would allow people to block out certain TV programs. The amendment was part of a larger telecommunications bill. The bill also covered cable TV rates, cable and broadcast station ownership and telephone service and competition. close
