On Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009, Congressman John Conyers and his industry friends held a Town Hall at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit to discuss his sponsorship of a bill that would levy a Performance Tax on local radio ( H.R. 848).

Greater Media Detroit stations WRIF, WCSX and WMGC joined forces with follow broadcasters and local radio supporters at the meeting. Also joining in support of Local Radio at the meeting was the Reverend Al Sharpton. Greater Media Detroit Market Manager John Gallagher, also in attendance, shares his feelings why the effects of a performance tax would be catastrophic, potentially forcing stations out of business, additional lost jobs in the radio industry, stifling new artists, harming community organizations that need radio for support and the listening public who depend on local radio.

Greater Media urges voters to learn more about how in the midst of these hard economic times some members of congress are attempting to push through a tax on radio stations that play music at http://noperformancetax.org/
