Public Papers - 1992 - October
Statement by Press Secretary Fitzwater on the Veto of the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992
We stood for lower cable bills for the consumer through increased competition. This is an important principle. We genuinely believe that our approach would be a better way to increase the variety of services available to the consumer at lower prices. We now call on the House of Representatives to support the American consumer and sustain the President's veto.
Note: S. 12, which passed over the President's veto on October 5, was assigned Public Law No. 102 - 385.
