Last week, the MAB held a series of congressional meetings across the state. We want to thank all of our members who joined us for these important meetings – we appreciate your time and your grassroots advocacy on behalf of the MAB and our industry!
The focus of these meetings was to advocate on behalf of Michigan broadcasters regarding:
the post-spectrum auction repack and the need for additional funding and deadline extension beyond the 39 months to ensure that all the stations moving to a new channel are made whole in the repack;
the MAB’s opposition to the performance tax and our support for the Local Radio Freedom Act; and
the need to preserve deductibility of advertising as ordinary and necessary business expenses in any future tax reform proposals.
