Clinton Signs Law Enforcement Bill for Cable TV: The bill grants $11.5 million in extra funding for the Federal Communications Commission to enforce a new law regulating cable TV rates. In passing the bill, Congress said the additional money should allow the FCC to move up enforcement of the cable law to Sept. 1 at the latest, but the agency said it may still have trouble meeting that deadline because of delays in getting staff and space. The commission last month postponed enforcement of the law from June 21 to Oct. 1, citing a lack of money. When the FCC begins enforcing the law, more than two-thirds of the nation's cable operators will be required to reduce their rates by about 10%.
