Help us urge House members to cosponsor the Local Radio Freedom Act!
We at Crawford Media Group are inviting you to communicate with Congress on a crucial issue for broadcasters. Please join us in urging House members to cosponsor the Local Radio Freedom Act! As broadcasters, we understand the financial and regulatory burdens that local radio stations face. The Local Radio Freedom Act declares that “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 opposing bill would constitute a massive expansion of government into the music licensing space and would mainly benefit the three major record labels that already dominate the market.
We urge you to reach out to your representatives and ask them to cosponsor the Local Radio Freedom Act.
- a sample letter to update with your information
(We invite you to build on this letter and incorporate information about your station and its impact on the community)
- a spreadsheet with names and contact information for House members who have not yet cosponsored LRFA or AMFA
- a fact sheet about the Local Radio Freedom Act
We urge you to reach out to your representatives and those in your stations’ districts and ask them to cosponsor the Local Radio Freedom Act. Thank you for partnering with us!
