AM revitalization gets added push from key lawmakers
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
Two Houston Congressmen, Republican Pete Olson and Democrat Gene Green, are urging FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to change course and speed up efforts to begin revitalizing the AM band by granting AM licensees an opportunity to acquire FM translators. Olson is the only Texan on the key House Communications and Technology Subcommittee and will keynote the Community Service Awards Breakfast at the TAB Annual Convention Aug. 5-6 in Austin. Green is the longtime co-author of the anti-Performance Tax measure known as HConRes 17, or the Local Radio Freedom Act.
