Neil v. Federal Communications Agency

The Deadvertising Act of 2015 (Pub L. 74-122, 89 Comp. 154, enacted September 19, 2015, H.C. 773) is an Alcenian federal law that regulates advertising within the country. Specifically, it sets restrictions on the length of advertisements, the pervasiveness of advertisements, and provisions intended to limit advertising towards children. It amended the Federal Communications Act of 1996, granting the Director of the FCA authority to enforce the provisions of the act. The act was introduced into the House of Commons by Kevin McMallard (SR-NV) and was sponsored by the Social Republican Congressional Conference (SRCC) and by fifteen Christian Democratic members of the Commons. It passed with both bipartisan support and opposition in the House and near-unaminous consent in the Senate, with only one vote against: Senator Karen Mitchell (CD-BK). It was signed into law by President Grant Carlyle on September 19, 2015 and went into effect that same day.

The law was the center of a 2018 Supreme Court case, Neil v. Federal Communications Agency, which upheld the law as constitutional.
