Prometheus Radio Project says that Rep. Louise Slaughter, D- N.Y., plans to introduce a bill to expand the number of LPFMs. The measure would be companion legislation to a measure introduced in the Senate by Sens. John McCain, R- Ariz., Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash. The bill would instruct the FCC to drop third-adjacent channel protection when allocating LPFMs.
Meanwhile, the FCC is accepting comments until Aug. 22 to MM Docket #99-25 on several ownership and engineering proposals to grow the LPFM service, as previously reported.
