NAB Statement on Senate Commerce Committee Passage of Low Power Protection Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the Senate Commerce Committee of the Low Power Protection Act, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt:

“NAB applauds the Senate Commerce Committee on passage of the Low Power Protection Act. This legislation offers a long-overdue opportunity for low power television stations operating in the smallest and mostly rural markets to gain Class A status and ensure their continued service into the future. Providing important interference protections will allow these broadcasters to better serve their millions of viewers by hiring more journalists, investing in new equipment and transitioning to the ATSC 3.0 standard. America’s hometown broadcasters thank Sens. Blunt (MO) and Wyden (OR) for introducing this legislation and Sens. Klobuchar (MN) and Fischer (NE) for their support, and we support swift passage of the bill.”
