I am emailing to let you know how important the Local Journalism Sustainability Act (HR 3940) is to me and how it would provide resources to this newspaper and its ability to serve our community. Your support of this important bill would be greatly appreciated.
It’s no secret the newspaper industry has been in turmoil in recent years due to a variety of factors. These challenges were compounded by the impact of the pandemic. However, newspapers’ commitment to providing valuable and needed information to their readers has never faded.
This bill has three components that will help this newspaper as it transitions to the changing needs of the readers:
This bill sunsets in five years, but it will help us today as we continue our recovery from the pandemic and the disruption that has affected our industry. We are thankful to Rep. Kirkpatrick and Rep. Newhouse for recognizing the need to support local journalism by introducing this bill. We would be equally grateful for your support as a co-sponsor.
