A special "THANK YOU" to New York Congressman Nick Langworthy (R. NY 23) for signing on to the Local Radio Freedom Act H. Con. Res. 13. This congressional resolution supports local radio stations by opposing the imposition of a performance fee on radio stations. Imposing a performance fee on local over-the-air radio will siphon much-needed revenues from stations in communities across New York. It will have a negative impact on employment and undermine the financial ability of stations to serve their communities.
The Local Radio Freedom Act already has 171 co-sponsors in this session of Congress. This includes Rep. Elise Stefanik (R. NY 21), Rep. Claudia Tenney (R. NY 24), and Rep. Gregor Meeks (D NY 5), who cosponsored the bill earlier in the year. This was a key issue during our recent visit to Washington D.C. We are in the process of following up with other offices. Once Again, THANK YOU CONGRESSMAN LANGWORTHY.
