“I support Public, Educational and Government (PEG) access television in my community. PEG access television is an important resource for city and county council meetings; K-12 information; high school, community college and university distance learning and education; nonprofit and religious programming; and individual community programming.
The Community Access Preservation Act S. 1789 (the CAP Act) will protect and preserve these local community channels. Please co-sponsor and vote for the CAP Act.”
You can personalize your message by including information on your favorite shows or how you never miss a city council meeting or how important being able to view your religious services are to you.
