March 6, 2013 at 12:56 PM (PT)
Sen. JOHN BARRASSO (R-WY) and Sen. HEIDI HEITKAMP (D-ND) have introduced a version of the Local Radio Freedom Act in the Senate. The bill, offered today as Senate Concurrent Resolution 6, would, like its House counterpart, block any new fees, taxes or royalties for music played on local radio stations.
Reps. GENE GREEN (D-TX) and K. MICHAEL CONAWAY (R-TX) introduced the House version of the bill earlier this year after the previous version of the bill did not advance last year.
