State Capitol Bureau

Intro: Bartle ready to take on NFL's media coverage policy RunTime:
OutCue: SOC

Sen. Matt Bartle will adopt a wait-and-see policy on the NFL's new policy regarding local media coverage.

However, Bartle has his doubts, and expressed concern over the NFL's ever-increasing reach and "strong-arm" tactics.

Actuality:  BARTLE3.WAV
Run Time: 00:11
Description: And so ultimately we worry about these rules and whether the rules are going to basically create a situation where the only message that emanates from these games are messages that the NFL likes.


Bartle previously introduced a bill that would allow local media coverage on the field at stadiums that are publicly funded.
