NAB PAC - Dollars Spent For The NAB Agenda

March 12, 2007

A PAC is a political Action Committee. PACS are formed to forward and lobby a specific agenda.

Did you know that the NAB considers themselves a "Player" in Washington?

Ever wonder what is on the agenda of the NAB PAC?

Well, here it is: Any Comments??????

In today's ever changing world, cutting edge technology is having a profound effect on our industry and the way we do business. NAB continues to work with policy makers and business leaders to ensure that the interests of the broadcasting community are heard as these technologies develop.

What is a PAC?

A PAC is a Political Action Committee used by trade associations, small and large businesses and corporations since 1944. PACs are composed of like-minded people for the purpose of electing candidates who support their interests.

The NAB PAC is bi-partisan, contributing to both Democratic and Republican candidates in the U.S. House and Senate who understand the broadcast industry's agenda and support free over-the-air broadcasting. The commitment of hundreds of radio and television broadcasters has helped the NAB PAC become a key "player" in Congress.

Your generous support for the NAB PAC is an investment to protect and grow your business.

Here are just a few of the many important items on our agenda this year:

- Preventing expansion of LPFM stations into commercial radio stations' third adjacent channel of interference protection

- Fighting increased content regulations and excessive fines for indecent content
Stopping 500 million dollars worth of proposed analog spectrum "user fees"

- Opposing a 1% gross revenue tax on all radio and TV stations that would subsidize candidates' political ads

- Protecting local markets from satellite industry intrusion
It is crucial for every NAB member to provide support for the NAB PAC. Our future as an industry is riding on its success in Washington.

Who does the NAB PAC support?

The NAB PAC supports both Republican and Democratic candidates for the U.S. House and Senate. We support candidates who support our industry regardless of party affiliation. Our PAC contributions are effective because we target them to candidates who serve on critical committees that oversee our industry's interests, including broadcasting and tax issues as well as government regulation.

Broadcasters Coming Together

We understand that a strong, active and permanent presence on Capitol Hill is crucial to expressing these interests. That's why the NAB PAC has become a vital part of the NAB and its government relations activities.

Investing In Broadcasting's Future

NAB's bi-partisan political action committee (NAB PAC) was founded with the primary mission of helping to elect members of Congress who understand and support our industry.
