Dear House Speaker Pelosi...

In a letter sent yesterday to House Speaker NANCY PELOSI, three minority and civil rights organizations expressed grave concern over the "devestating effect" a performance tax would have on minority radio broadcasters and their listening communities.
"We are coming to you today unified in one voice respectfully requesting that you ensure that these issues and all policy implications that may be germane to other committees are fully vetted before this legislation is scheduled for consideration on the House floor," the groups wrote.
The letter was signed by MINORITY MEDIA AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS COUNCIL Exec. Dir DAVID HONIG; LAWYERS' COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW Exec. Dir. BARBARA ARNWINE and director, Spanish Broadcasters Association Dir. FRANCISCO MONTERO.
