Majority of U.S. House Opposes Radio Performance Fee
Washington, DC - Jun 3, 2009 - A majority of U.S. House members is now publicly opposed to the action to rescind the exemption terrestrial radio have enjoyed by not having to pay the performance fee for music played on the air. The Local Radio Freedom Act, a bipartisan resolution that denounces the imposition of "any new performance fee, tax, royalty or other charge" on radio for music airplay now has 220 House co-sponsors and 12 Senate co-sponsors.
The Local Radio Freedom Act was introduced by Reps. Gene Green (TX) and Mike Conaway (TX). In March, an identical resolution was introduced in the Senate (S. Con. Res. 14) by Sens. Blanche Lincoln (AR) and John Barrasso (WY).
