In a 21 to 9 vote today (5/13), the House Judiciary Committee voted to send the Performance Royalties Act to the full House for a vote. During a heated three-hour hearing, three amendments to the bill were offered and only one amendment, which reduced the fees to small broadcasters, was embraced. Broadcasters were buoyed when Democratic California representative Maxine Waters reversed her support for H.R. 848, stating concern about the bill’s potential financial impact on broadcasters.
