The Recording Academy will hold its annual “Grammys in my District” grassroots advocacy event on October 2. It is important for members of Congress to hear from broadcasters about the impact of a performance royalty on local broadcasters. We need you to contact your Representative between now and October 2 and ask them to stand with local broadcasters against a Performance Tax.

The Recording Academy is activating thousands of members to meet with their legislators in their home districts on Wednesday, October 2. Their message will be: A tax on local radio is long overdue. We can’t let their voices be the only ones legislators hear.

Act now and tell your legislators to support local radio by becoming a co-sponsor of the Local Radio Freedom Act, which opposes a tax on radio. Give your employees the opportunity to express their view on the Performance Tax. Ask them to correspond with Congress to make our response even greater. We ask you to use your own social media to promote the value of over the air broadcasting especially between now and October 2.

These representatives already co-sponsor the Local Radio Freedom Act (H.Con.Res.20).  Thank them for their support:

Rep. Fred Upton
Rep. Debbie Dingell
Rep. Bill Huizenga
Rep. Tim Walberg
Rep. Paul Mitchell

Use these social media images and tag your legislator in a Tweet or Facebook post thanking them on behalf of your listeners.
