What is the status of the 5-year reauthorization of Section 119 of the copyright law which permits RVers to receive network feeds of the major networks? It was set to expire 12/31/19, but we still have the feeds. Should we assume that it was reauthorized or is it still in jeopardy?

This question is beyond any of our regular topics.

A search did not find any definitive answer to the question. 

It seems that the government entities involved are in disarray. 

Status Quo is the apparent result of inaction on the reauthorization.

We’ve never used satellite TV and don’t keep up with that technology.
