2. Local Radio Freedom Act Supported by Majority of House
A bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives is now cosponsoring the Local Radio Freedom Act (LRFA), a resolution opposing new performance royalties on local radio stations. This sends a strong message to musicFIRST and the record labels that Congress stands opposed to new fees that would hurt the incredible public service and community connection that local radio provides.
