Orphan Counties want In State Television

The Federal Communications Commission must revise it's rules to allow orphan counties to receive local news and sports from Television Stations in their own State. These are in addition to the Television Stations that are currently available.

Why is this important?

Garrett County Maryland is only one of hundreds of Counties across our Nation that is considered an Orphan County by the Federal Communication Commission. As an Orphan County, we do not have the opportunity to view Television Stations from our own State. Thousands of Garrett County residents would like to see local news and sports from the Washington DC and Baltimore MD area but because of the FCC rules, we cannot.
Please help us by signing this petition and If you also are in an orphan county, you too should sign this petition.
