Murray applauds passage of cable code amendments

Today, Mayor Murray issued the following statement after the Seattle City Council approved changes to the City’s rules governing cable television services in Seattle:

“I want to thank the Seattle City Council, especially Councilmembers Harrell and Licata, for their hard work updating Seattle’s cable code. I applaud the legislation’s unanimous adoption today.

Today was an important day for Seattle with the passage of our new cable code. The revised code encourages the entry of competitive cable television providers throughout the city. Competition is the best way to help our community realize lower cable television prices and improved customer service. In addition, the code reflects our commitment to equity by requiring providers to serve diverse communities and neighborhoods.”
