As touched upon during the Charlie Chat, lawmakers in Utah and Kentucky are debating about satellite tax. Governer Ernie Fletcher of Kentucky has proposed a 7.62 tax. Meanwhile in Utah, cable interests are lobbying state lawmakers and others concerning a tax on cable and satellite TV passed earlier this year. More HERE.

Fox Sports Net is suing EchoStar. They claim Dish owes at least $25 million in subscription fees for carrying its 12 regional channels. More HERE.

A few notes from yesterday's Dish Network retailer chat have been posted HERE.

Have a great day!
