The Songwriter Equity Act Picks Up Another Co-Sponsor In The House Of Representatives

November 21, 2016


Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)

Last week the Songwriter Equity Act (H.R. 1283) gained an additional co-sponsor within the House of Representatives, Rep. Marcy Kaptur from Ohio.

Rep. Kaptur (D-OH) is a veteran Congressional member and has served in office since 1983. Kaptur represents Ohio’s 9th District and currently sits on the House Appropriations committee.

Earlier this fall, another Democratic House Member signed on to the Bill, Rep. Jared Huffman of California. The Songwriter Equity Act has gained over forty House co-sponsors this Congressional term, and we greatly thank the various legislators who have stood with songwriters. We hope to draw similar support in the new Congress.
