Dear Chairman Wheeler:

I am writing to ask that every due consideration be given to Quincy Incorporated's waiver of

the recent rule change on joint sales and shared service agreements as it relates to their pending

acquisition of several stations, including the NBC station in Peoria. Please note their filing predates

the rule change at the meeting on March 31 and that of the stations being bought, 3 have existing

agreements with other stations in the market.

Quincy Incorporated is a sixth generation family company with an extremely strong

commitment to public service on air and to the communities they serve. I know the Oakley family

personally and can attest to their commitment to their home community of Quincy, Illinois.

Should you have any questions on this matter, please feel free to contact me.

Member of Congress
