The article discusses the three cable-franchising reform bills in Florida. The first bill, HB529, will move video franchising authority to the Department of State, while consumer complaints handled by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Meanwhile, the other two bills, HB1772 and SB855, will require local governments to adopt a model ordinance on video franchising. However, in response to the bills, local authorities questioned the right of states to override local contracts.
