New Bill Would Enable More LPFMs

Reps. MIKE DOYLE (D-PA) and LEE TERRY (R-NE) are preparing to buck the NAB by introducing a bill to allow the FCC to eliminate third-adjacent-channel interference protection for full-power stations, thus paving the way for more LPFM stations.
The bill is reportedly being launched today, and a similar bill is expected in the Senate, with Sens. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ) and MARIA CANTWELL (D-WA), who took a shot at the same change in an amendment that failed last year, as sponsors.
