Texans’ Love of Radio Drives Policy Success

TAB President Oscar Rodriguez will be writing quarterly commentaries for the RadioWorld newsletter and website.

Texans’ Love of Radio Drives Policy Success

In our latest advocacy effort in Washington, TAB linched our 23rd co-sponsor of a Congressional resolution opposing the record label industry’s effort to force yet another royalty on local radio stations, this one for each song aired.

Already sporting the greatest number of co-sponsors of any state congressional delegation, the new co-sponsor further cements Texas’ standing as a bulwark against a “Performance Tax.” Such a measure would come on top of the hundreds of millions of dollars the industry collectively pays already to performance rights organizations, as well as the millions of dollars that Texas stations alone pay artists performing in their live concerts.
