Safe Harbor Bill Sponsors Needed — Ask Congress to Support the Journalism Competition & Preservation Act


Despite record demand for quality news content, many newspapers remain strained financially. Facebook and Google control monetization of the digital news audience and take the majority of digital advertising dollars. The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) will give news publishers a much-needed safe harbor to collectively negotiate more favorable terms from the dominant online platforms. We expect Committee markup of the House bill (H.R. 2054) before the elections. Please contact your federal elected officials and ask that they sponsor this legislation.
