Positive trends on the Hill for LPFM?

Positive trends on the Hill for LPFM?

Attending the Future of Music Policy Summit in Washington, attorney David Oxenford of Davis Wright Tremaine writes in his blog that at a panel about legislative matters affecting music, “only one issue was perceived as being likely to be considered and potentially resolved by this Congress, before the presidential election. That was the issue of LPFM, where bills have been introduced in Congress to eliminate the restrictions that prohibited LPFM stations from causing third-adjacent channel interference to other stations.”

Oxenford said staffers from both the House and Senate indicated that, “while there were many other issues of importance to those in the music industry that might be considered this year, LPFM was the one issue that had a chance of actually being adopted this year, given bipartisan support for pending bills.”
