LPFM Supporters Lobbying Clinton

LPFM supporters thanked President Bill Clinton for his support of the planned new service and urged him to continue fighting for the issue during resumed budget talks. Before the Presidential election, Congress passed an appropriations measure that included language that would allow the FCC to license LPFMs, but only if current channel protections are maintained.
At one point during earlier budget talks, Clinton threatened to veto the measure, including the LPFM language as one thing he objected to. Lawmakers have not yet sent the appropriations measure to the White House for his signature or veto.
Supporters from various LPFM supporter groups signed a letter to Clinton urging him to stand firm on LPFM. Some of the signers were: the Low Power Radio Coalition, United Methodist Church and the National Federation of Community Broadcasters.
