We urge Speaker Pelosi and Leaders Schumer, McConnell and McCarthy to swiftly pass the Expanding Broadcast Ownership Opportunities Act introduced by Reps. G.K. Butterfield and Steven Horsford and the Broadcast Varied Ownership Incentives for Community Expanded Service Act (Broadcast VOICES Act) introduced by Sens. Gary Peters and Robert Menendez. Supporting these pieces of legislation would eliminate barriers and create new opportunities for women, people of color and socially disadvantaged individuals to own local TV and radio stations.
