Using an obscure oversight authority, Thursday night the Senate “disapproved” a recent Federal Communications Commission rule which would relax restrictions on media ownership; it was a voice vote. President Bush has threatened a veto (pdf).
Should the resolution (SJ 28/HJ RES 79)
pass, and be signed into law, it would be only the second time Congress
has nullified an agency rulemaking. This is only the fourth time the
Senate has voted on such a resolution; two of the four are FCC ownership rule rejections. More at About.com.
