Performance Tax proposal in the offing, Radio poised for fight
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
Radio stations' effort to defeat a Performance Tax in the new session of Congress kicked off last week as 90 members of the House signed on to the Local Radio Freedom Act which opposes such a measure. Co-authored by Texas Reps. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, and Gene Green, D-Houston, H. Con. Res. 17 is a nonbinding resolution that expressly opposes efforts by the international record labels to force local radio stations to pay a performance royalty, in addition to the royalty payments already made to ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.

Joan Huffman, R-Houston, which is part of TAB's 2015 newsroom legislative agenda. Huffman chairs the committee.
