Congressman Marsha Blackburn
7th District of Tennessee
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement after receiving U.S. Copyright Office analysis regarding the copyright policy implications of the Federal Communications Commission’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the matter of Expanding Consumer’s Video Navigation Choices, Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices, also known as the set-top-box proposal.
The Copyright Office analysis responds to a bipartisan request from Representatives Blackburn (R-TN), Butterfield (D-NC), Collins (R-GA) and Deutsch (D-CA) for the Copyright Office’s comment issued on July 15th, and maintains that the NPRM would detrimentally impact copyright owners and consumers by compelling transmission of copyright protected content without programmers’ consent.
Nashville, TN – Okay, I admit it. I was never that big of a wrestling fan. You know why – it seemed fake, was too scripted, so overly dramatic and always over the top. But I had friends who loved it. My college roommate would often reenact a Jimmy “The Superfly” Snuka leap off of his bed straight onto yours truly further alienating me from the entertainment value of the sport.
However, attending the WWE SmackDown Live on August 2nd, 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee might have finally tilted me toward fandom – or, at least provided me with extreme appreciation for the empire that Vince McMahon and Company have built over the past four decades.

Nashville, TN – Young firesetters cause hundreds of deaths and injuries each year according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Preschoolers and kindergartners are most likely to start these fires, typically by playing with matches and lighters, and are most likely to die in them.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office warns Tennesseans of the risk associated with children and fire-starting items, especially novelty lighters.
Novelty lighters resembling children’s toys can attract curious kids who may see these items as fun, but may not recognize them as potential fire hazards. While Tennessee banned the sale of novelty lighters in 2008, these products still represent a potential threat to lives and property.
