I am *yay* about the volume on commercials. I know, it's silly and trivial, but it does piss me off to no end. Plus, sometimes I watch tv after the hubs has gone to sleep and the sudden loudness has had me scrambling more than once.
I dare say, this law most likely reflects the will of 90% of television viewers. Isn't our representative government supposed to make laws that the people want? This law is an easy call. Most people would want this law.
The stupid man says: "Government trying to decrease volume of loud commercials is communism! We are now a communist nation!"
I like this bill, I have always had this problem with commercials anyway, hopefully they pass similar bills like this.
According to the article the senate has to pass it first. So who thinks the ever noble senators won't accept bribe money from the advertisement lobby?
With the loyalty of alley cats it would be rare for the senate not to stuff their fat wallets and thumb their noses at the public.
This is probably too good to be true. Back to business as always.
