FCC broadband plan to propose creation of Video.gov

The Federal Communication Commission's forthcoming broadband road map calls for the creation of Video.gov -- a Web video archive not too unlike the White House's other information portals.

The FCC's government performance director, Eugene Huang, first discussed the provision at a civic engagement conference this week. He said would arrive as part of the agency's National Broadband Plan, due to Congress on May 17.

The video archive would build on the early successes of Data.gov, the information hub established during the first year of President Barack Obama's administration. However, the video archive would be managed by the Library of Congress and other archival agencies within the federal government, not the White House.
