JCPA heading to U.S. House Judiciary Committee; support passage with an editorial from NMA

The News Media Alliance anticipates the Journalism Competition and Preservation (JCPA) text will be released by Tuesday, July 19 in advance of a House Judiciary Committee markup, and the newspaper industry is looking for all the support and momentum it can generate.

NMA members are running a coordinated ad-campaign and publishing editorials to promote the JCPA in the following days. NMA has supplied a “sample” editorial and we’re encouraging Kentucky newspapers to consider publishing the editorial in next week’s edition.
