We’re thrilled to let everyone know that the House bill passed! Thanks to your incredible support we were able to overcome the NAB’s efforts to derail us. Phone calls rained into the congressional offices over the past 36 hours. Just amazing.
We’re not done. We still need to get the bill through the Senate, which looks like it will be voting on the bill on Monday.
So stay tuned. We want to make sure the Senators know how important it is for them support our resolution. We’ll be reaching out again to ask you for one more push.
Our deepest gratitude.
Tim (Founder)
NOTE:
The Webcaster Settlement Act of 2008 bill continues to be called HR 7084, even though it’s in the Senate now.
You can find your Senators’ names and phone numbers here.

    Excellent! Pandora lives. I use pandora daily, great site. Now if I could just make a living on-line, all would be right with the world.

    Here is the most direct link (that I could find) for this piece of legislation. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:H.R.7084: Also, for those of you who don't have time to call in to your senator, you can fill out an online form for most of them.
