According to one source, McCain's bill came as a surprise to cable and satellite lobbyists, who were said to have been meeting with his staffers Monday to get briefed on the legislation.
McCain is a veteran critic of cable pricing and has long pushed for an a la carte model of programming, either voluntarily or via legislation.
