Supporting Local News
Republicans and Democrats in Congress know that government support is needed to help save the local press system, and that it can be done without compromising news outlets’ independence. But they’re taking too long to act. As we enter the second half of the year it’s appearing unlikely that Congress will do anything save local journalism in 2024.
The Illinois legislature has approved measures that provide $25 million in tax credits over the next five years for local news organizations to hire and retain journalists, becoming the second large state in two months to try to bolster the ailing local news industry with tax incentives.
