The National Association of Broadcasters has asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia not to act on the association's challenge to the Federal Communications Commission's online political file rule until the FCC has had a chance to modify them or review the rules' impact.
In a motion filed with the court on Jan 18 to hold the case in abeyance, which NAB says the FCC does not oppose, the association says it makes more sense for the court to wait until the FCC either rules on a petition for reconsideration filed by broadcast groups, or for the FCC's one-year review of the rule -- which must begin no later than July 1, 2013 -- that the FCC promised when it voted in August to require broadcasters to upload political files to an FCC-administered database.
