Amends the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (S. 3304), as engrossed by the Senate, to make certain technical corrections to it as well as to amendments it makes to the Communications Act of 1934.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
