Stipulates that, notwithstanding any other provisions of the Act, the Federal Communications Commission, in acting upon an application for the renewal of a license, may not consider the application of any other person for the facilities for which such renewal is sought. States that if the Commission finds the public interest will be served then the renewal application shall be granted.
