Local Radio Freedom Act Gains More Support


Six members of the House of Representatives have signed on as co-sponsors for the Local Radio Freedom Act. The bill, which opposes performance royalties or other new fees for broadcast radio, now has 177 co-sponsors in the House and 12 in the Senate.

Adding their support are Reps. Wm. Lacy Clay of Missouri, Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, Ralph Hall of Texas, David Scott of Georgia, Fred Upton of Michigan, and Randy Weber, also of Texas.

The bill was introduced in February by Reps. Michael Conaway (R-TX) and Gene Green (D-TX) with 71 additional co-sponsors. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and John Barrasso (R-WY) introduced an identical bill in the Senate on March 6.
