Performance Tax bill yields much press coverage, less support
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
New York Congressman Jerry Nadler's bill that would impose a Performance Tax on local radio stations is getting substantial press coverage in Washington, D.C., but lawmakers so far have been shy about signing on, with those weighing in on the issue at all siding with broadcasters' competing Local Radio Freedom Act, which opposes such a measure. To date, 170 House members are co-sponsoring the pro-broadcaster H. Con. Res. 17, but radio stations should not be complacent and are urged to continue pressing their lawmakers who remain silent on the issue to sign on to the measure co-authored by Texas Reps. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, and Gene Green, D-Houston.

TAB newsroom legislative package advancing, other measures affecting newsrooms in play
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
With 33 days left in the legislative session, TAB's top newsroom legislative priority, a measure to address a disastrous Texas Supreme Court ruling that hampers reporting third party allegations, continues to make steady progress toward passage. The Texas Senate last week approved SB 627 by Sen. Joan Huffman, R-Houston, in a 30-0 vote. It will now play catch-up with HB 1766 by Rep. Todd Hunter, R-Corpus Christi, the House companion bill, which was heard and approved by the House Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence Committee last week.
