On February 26-27, members of the MAB Board of Directors will travel to Washington, D.C. for the 2019 National Association of Broadcasters State Leadership Conference and MAB Call on Congress. MAB members will meet with the Michigan Congressional delegation and their telecommunication staff to discuss: (1) the need to oversee the FCC as it moves through the repacking timeline to ensure that no stations are forced off the air due to the circumstances outside their control; (2) ask the Congress to ensure that any changes to the C-Band spectrum protect the existing users and their audiences from harmful interference; (3) broadcasters’ opposition to the performance tax and MAB’s support of the Local Radio Freedom Act; (4) broadcasters’ opposition to the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization (STELAR) that harms some viewers who are being denied access to their local television stations.
