Submission + - CALM Act Passed (

eldavojohn writes: About a year ago, legislation to control the volume of TV commercials was introduced and has recently passed. This problem has dated back to the 1960s but after the president signs the bill, broadcasters will be subject to regulations of the Advanced Television Systems Committee on what is "too loud." Of the last 25 quarterly reports from the FCC, this has been the number one consumer complaint in 21 of them. Within a year you should start to notice the difference and not notice a commercial forcing you to turn down the TV during breaks of your regular programming.
