UPDATE: The House bill passed! Read more.
Thanks to everyone who has been calling over the past 24 hours – we’ve heard from many offices that calls have been raining in. The House vote is coming up this afternoon. The NAB is trying furiously to derail the bill. This has become a direct fight between the lobbying power of the large broadcasters and the collective voice of constituents.
Congressional staff are in their offices all weekend, so it’s not too late to call your representative. Please note – TELEPHONE CALLS ARE WHAT COUNT. Our allies in Washington tell us that a direct phone call from a constituent is the most substantial sign of support. Emails are generally discounted as they are considered too easy to write, and often automated.
We’ll let you know as soon as we know more. If we prevail in the House, the Senate is next…

    I was looking for a way to contact pandora just to express my appreciation for this individualized internet radio when I saw Tim's plea for listeners to contact our congressional reps re Bill 7084. Time to call Rep. Mike McNulty.

    Congratulations on 7084 being passed with bipartisan support and without any real opposition. I watched the proceedings today on CSPAN. I listen to Pandora every day and I've purchased a lot of music for my car's cd player from Amazon because of Pandora's ability to expose me to music I've never heard before and could never hear on broadcast radio. Keep up the great work and I hope you continue to get increased advertiser support.

    I called Pelosi's office. The guy who answered her phone wouldn't tell me what her position was, but I left voicemail for her.

    I called tonight and got Marilyn Muscrave's voice mail and asked her to approve this bill. I hope that call helps! This is a great site to be for music.
