A delegation of Nevada’s broadcasters, led by NVBA president Mary Beth Sewald and NVBA chairman Todd Brown, were on Capitol Hill last week advocating on behalf of Nevada’s free and local television and radio stations. The delegation met with Nevada’s federal legislators and discussed some of the important issues affecting Nevada’s broadcasters. Among the issues discussed were opposition to a performance tax on lo-cal radio stations, allowing TV broadcasters to continue to negotiate through private, market-based agreements for fair compensation for content, and opposition to any effort to alter the tax treatment of advertising. Several members of Congress took to the House floor to praise local TV and radio stations for their roles as first informers, innova-tors, leaders in community service, and engines of economic growth.
