Re:Create Statement On Omnibus Bill Not Containing JCPA

Re:Create issued the following statement thanking Congressional leaders for keeping the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) out of end-of-year, spending legislation:

“The JCPA is a highly-controversial piece of legislation that did not belong in any end-of-year spending packages, and we are thankful Congressional leaders recognized this basic fact and successfully kept the JCPA out of the omnibus and all other lame duck legislation,” said Re:Create Executive Director Joshua Lamel. “The JCPA continues to threaten local journalism while rewarding Big Media, censor free speech while hurting a free press, but we will remain vigilant against subsequent attempts to ram this contentious legislation through. We urge Congressional leaders to reject the JCPA.”
