LRFA Approaching Critical Mass


US CongressWhen it comes to the Local Radio Freedom Act, the 200 co-sponsor threshold is in the rear view mirror for Congress in general, and it is within shouting distance in the House of Representatives in particular.

Four more members of the House have signed on.

LRFA states: “Congress should not impose any new performance fee, tax, royalty, or other charge relating to the public performance of sound recordings on a local radio station for broadcasting sound recordings over-the-air, or on any business for such public performance of sound recordings.”

The newest co-sponsors:
Mark Amodei (NV-2)
Kevin Brady (TX-8)
Tom Graves (GA-14)
David Valadao (CA-21).

There are 435 representatives in the House – so getting to 218 is the goal. If that many members support LRFA, and therefore logically oppose the Fair Play Fair Pay Act, FPFPA would be unpassable.
