After years of effort, NYSBA received assistance in our battle to prevent interference from illegal and unauthorized radio operations in the AM and FM band. The vote for S5739-A was overwhelming, 62-0 in the Senate and 138-4 in the Assembly. The legislation makes operation of an illegal radio station a “Class “A” misdemeanor. The legislation will be sent to the Governor soon. Attached is a letter NYSBA has sent to the Governor requesting that he sign and enact the legislation. We have urged our radio stations members to communicate their support to the Governor.
