Congress May Yet Act On LPFM

Congress May Yet Act On LPFM
Publish date:

Action was expected last week on LPFM legislation in the Senate and that may yet happen this week.
The Senate Appropriations Committee might attach Sen. Rod Grams' LPFM legislation to a larger spending bill this week. The bill, S-3020, would allow a new class of LPFMs to be created, but only with full channel protections retained. The measure also calls for testing for possible interference to stations on 3rd-adjacent channels and a station carrying a radio reading service.
