Washington - Dec 16, 2009 - The Local Community Radio Act passed the House of Representatives and now moves to the Senate. If enacted, the bill will allow new low-power commercial stations to apply for licenses.

Following the recommendations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the House of Representatives voted to remove technical restrictions Congress placed on low-power radio in 2000.

One requirement for LPFM stations in the new bill is for LPFM stations to resolve interference to other stations when it occurs.
