FCC urged to move on multilingual emergency alerts.

The Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Counsel (MMTC), along with 25 other civil rights and consumer groups, have sent a letter to the FCC asking again that they require multilingual emergency alerts in markets where “sizable populations are non-English speaking.” The first time the groups petitioned the FCC was 10 years ago, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Now they are using the anniversary of that disaster to press the Commission once again.
