On December 21, 2006, Governor Granholm signed legislation to promote competition in providing video service in the state of Michigan. This legislation is known as Public Act 480, or more commonly known as the "Uniform Video Services Local Franchise Act". 2006 PA 480 creates a uniform franchise agreement that is to be used between each franchising entity and video provider in the state of Michigan. The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has been the designated agency to implement the Act.
