Congressman Jared Huffman Coronavirus Virtual Town Hall


In this virtual Town Hall meeting shown live on Marin TV Education Channel 30 and live-streamed on Facebook on Tuesday, March 24, Congressman Jared Huffman fields questions posed from Californians on Facebook Live about COVID19 from the county, state, and federal perspectives, and shares important information about the pandemic's impact from a medical, educational, and business standpoint provided by family medicine physician Dr. Lisa Santora, Marin County Superintendent of Schools Mary Jane Burke, and the U.S. Small Business Association's Bill Koontz.

CMCM CLOSED through April 7

In light of recent Coronavirus information and Bay Area-wide “Shelter in Place” order, CMCM has decided to close the center to members and the general public through Tuesday, April 7th. We will reevaluate that date as conditions permit.

Over the past weekend, many states and local municipalities moved quickly to limit gatherings and personal contact as a public health precaution, the “Stay In Place” order finalizes those recommendations.

Given the often contradictory and inaccurate information coming from the Federal Government and the White House, we feel it is best to err on the side of safety for our members and our staff.

Existing Studio Reservations: Current reservations will be postponed.

Current Equipment Checkouts: Equipment that was previously check out can be returned by appointment.

Currently Scheduled Courses: Current courses will be postponed until further notice. Enrollees may either continue when possible or receive a refund.

Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels & Community Media Centers like Marin TV

UPDATE August 2019
The FCC voted 3-2 (R-D) to approve the draft order 621 today. That was no surprise. The final order will be released in about a week - we'll know more then. Some interpretation of the order as it now stands:

1) FCC commissioner O’reilly pushed hard for PEG transport fees (use of fiber line between PEG and Cable operator) to be deducted from Franchise Fees (FF) - this may included in the final order. If so - CMCM could be charged for our connection to Comcast used to deliver the channels.

2) Values determined by cable companies for iNets and free cable drops will now be deducted from FF. This has no impact on CMCM since AT&T eliminated those public benefits 10 years ago when they passed the CA State Video Franchise (DIVCA). Note: Having decimated PEG in 21 states, AT&T has since ceased their rollout of U-Verse and now sells satellite TV service.
