“Sad to see so many on this thread supporting another fed power grab.”

I own the network airwaves. So do you. They have a license to broadcast subject to the pleasure of the owners — the United States citizenry. We are the TV landlords.

It is well documented that the landlords — US citizens — have been writing letters and making phone calls to all the networks for years about this noise problem. They had every chance to make this right without litigation or laws. They chose to ignore the problem. Now they get legislation.

Like any landlord, we did what anyone would do with a noisy tenant.

They’re lucky we only passed a noise ordinance. We should yank all their licenses and make them reapply.

This isn’t a Federal power grab. It’s a rare example of US citizens exercising their rights as the true owners of national assets.

So you admit to being PART OF THE PROBLEM. Hell, every stupid power grab law is put there by someone saying “there ought to be a law”.
