GRAMMYs on the Hill Capitol Hill Day

WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 06: Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) meets with John Popper, Jordan Popper, Martina McBride, and President of National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences Neil Portnow at The Recording Academy®’s annual GRAMMYs on the Hill® Advocacy Day, which brought more than 100 music creators from across the country to Washington, D.C. on April 6 to visit with lawmakers and bring music issues to the frontlines in hopes that Congress will better understand how these issues impact music creators nationwide. Bills discussed included the Fair Play Fair Pay Act, which seeks to reform music licensing for sound recordings in a logical, comprehensive way and close current corporate radio loopholes, as well as the Allocation for Music Producers Act (AMP Act), which includes producers in copyright law for the first time.
