WASHINGTON, DC – NAB is running print advertisements this week in several Capitol Hill publications, including Congress Daily, The Politico and Roll Call.
"If it walks like a duck, and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck… well, you know," the ad reads. "By levying a new fee on radio stations… Congress would be taxing the stations in their backyards to line the pockets of international record label executives."
NAB will also be delivering a stuffed toy duck to each Congressional office on Tuesday with a message that reads "No Performance Tax on Local Radio," along with a copy of the advertisement.
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
