Changes made to the Video Competition Act gain approval in the state Assembly. Lawmakers on Tuesday night concurred with amendments made to the bill in the Senate.
However, State Representative Gary Hebl (D-Sun Prairie) attempted to make further changes. Hebl and other Democrats pushed ten additional amendments to the bill. None of them were added to the bill. Many of them would have additional consumer protections and put tighter controls on video providers. Hebl says lawmakers will regret not moving to help protect consumers.
The bill now heads to Governor Doyle, who has not yet indicated if he will sign the measure.
