Telecom Bill Sees Yule Date

Rep.Jack Fields (R-Texas) said last week that telecom dereg legislation will likely be sent to President Clinton for his signature by Christmas.

“I do not want this to slip into 1996,” said Fields, warning that both Republicans and Democrats “might want to slow it (the bill) down” for political purposes in a presidential election year.

Fields, who chairs the House telecommunications subcommittee, is a chief architect of the telecom bill. Speaking before a group of D.C. communications lawyers on Nov. 15, Fields said V-chip language will be included in whatever bill emerges from the conference committee.

Fields maintained his opposition to the V-chip, saying he expects it will be declared unconstitutional. Fields also said he finds some of the material on TV talkshows “abhorrent,” but that the material should not be censored.
