MAB members are invited to meet with their local lawmakers and leaders who chair committees of influence to the broadcast industry.
The purpose of this event is to showcase television and radio stations’ commitment to their local communities and the investment it takes to make that happen. This includes community service, local programming content and the broadcast industry’s economic impact and job creation.
With term limits in place, it is important that we maintain strong relationships with our legislators so that the MAB can most effectively represent your interests. What is the best way to do that? By having constituents visit lawmakers and explain why these issues are important to them.
In the past, we have supported or opposed several pieces of critical legislation, for example:
- We work to oppose any proposal for state ad tax or tax on services.
- MAB works to open up public notice revenue to our members by reforming the outdated public notice laws.
- MAB helped pass legislation to standardize FOIA costs across the state.
- MAB battles to keep the sales tax deduction on broadcasting equipment.
- MAB works to ensure your station is not burdened by state regulations on the use of drones in newsgathering.
