LPFM Bill Passed By House Commerce Committee
October 16, 2009 at 4:02 AM (PT)
As expected, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce passed the Local Radio Freedom Act on THURSDAY.
The bill eliminates the third-adjacent channel interference protection for full-power FMs, thus enabling several new low-power FMs across the country.
The bill now goes to the full House; a companion bill is pending in the Senate Commerce Committee.
