You know those loud commercials on your television...they're about to leave quietly.

The Federal Communications Commission is looking to pass regulations requiring commercials to maintain the constant volume levels as the programs they interrupt. These new regulations would take effect next December.

While the limit is something thousands of viewers have waited to hear...some program providers oppose the idea.

President Obama signed a measure into law last year giving the FCC authority to address the problem.
