The Federal Communications Commission voted this morning to modify the disclosure procedures for major-market broadcast TV stations, requiring them to post their their "public files" -- which include information about political ads -- online in a FCC-hosted online database.

Currently, the public files are stored in paper form at a broadcaster's main studio. Chairman Julius Genachowski and Commissioner Mignon Clyburn voted to affirm the entire order, while Commissioner Robert McDowell dissented to the portions of the Order requiring the political file to be posted, according to an FCC statement.
