Federal Laws & Legislation

Apart from the FCC, there are other federal laws that affect broadcasting. For example, regulations promulgated by the Federal Trade Commission can have an impact on broadcasting. The following lists federal laws (not FCC) that may impact local stations:


Performance Fees: The Local Radio Freedom Act is a congressional resolution supporting local stations and opposing the imposition of a new government performance tax. The American Music Fairness Act seeks to impose such a tax. You can find more information here.

Betting Americas Future Act: The legislation seeks to ban all sports wagering advertising. You can find more information here.
