Murphy votes for Local Community Radio Act

Yesterday the U.S House of Representatives passed on a voice vote, HR 1147, the Local Community Radio Act of 2009. This bill will expand the low-power FM program, and allow communities throughout the country to have access to their own airwaves via their own community radio stations. A spokesman for Rep. Scott Murphy (D-NY20), who represents Greene and Columbia counties, says the congressman supported the measure. Now Senate bill 592 must pass that half of Congress before the bill goes to President Obama for a signature or veto.

  1. You are wrong. Mr. Murphy had nothing to do with WGXC getting that grant. He merely announced it. He was not in office when WGXC applied for the grant, and had nothing to do with it.

  2. I hope the local community likes their new radio access, courtesy Scott Murphy.

    On a related note, Murphy spent $71,000 of our hard-earned tax dollars recently to finance the local station WGXC’s expansion.

    I’m sure this station will have no problem objectively reporting on political issues involving Murphy after he bankrolled their operation.
