Local Radio Freedom Act Reaches 220 Co-sponsors
The Local Radio Freedom Act (H. Con. Res. 13) has reached majority support in the U.S. House of Representatives, with 220 House co-sponsors. This means that the majority of our nation’s legislators in the House have taken a stand to protect local radio listeners and stations in their district from the threat of a performance tax. “We thank Congress for its support, and local radio looks forward to continuing to provide unparalleled promotional value to record labels and artists in the form of free airplay of music,” said NAB President Gordon Smith in a statement.
