Statement of FCC Chairman William E. Kennard

We made a pragmatic, common sense decision not to disrupt an ongoing 3-4 day racing event involving a low-power television broadcast from a stadium into its parking lot. I believe this decision was made in good faith by all those involved.

Nevertheless, I have asked the Inspector General to inquire into these allegations and to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation.
