Constraints on the Regulatory Process: A Case Study of Regulation of Cable Television. Publication No. 75-5.
Berner, Ricahrd Olin
A case study approach is used to extensively examine the process by which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has regulated cable television. A chronological accounting of cable regulation suggests the constraints under which regulation has taken place. An examination of extra-agency groups which constrain the commission's regulatory choices argues that cable regulations are significantly influenced by pressures from outside the FCC. Constraints on the implementation of cables regulations are explored, especially those which arise from intra-agency attitudes, procedures, and politics. (JY)
