The 01581 – Streaming Bills with Sen. Moore

On this episode, Shelby sits down with Sen. Michael Moore and Karen Henderson to talk about the recent House and Senate Bills H.74 and S.34, which would direct the state to collect fees from streaming companies twice per year into the general fund.

Twenty percent would be retained for administrative costs. The remaining 80 percent would be disbursed to municipalities, based on population, to be evenly split between the municipality and its community media station for “expenditures related to hybrid municipal meetings, data infrastructure improvements, school technology programs and more,” according to Mass Access, a non-profit, 501(c)(6), membership-based advocacy agency who’s goal is to ensure the future of Massachusetts based community media centers.

    An interesting and informative presentation about the process of passing bills. Also the importance of PEG in providing useful and timely information to Westborough residents of all ages.
