Recording Academy, RIAA, Other Major Music Organizations Ask Congress for COVID-19 Aid
In the letter, the groups specifically ask Congress to (1) renew and extend Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation; (2) pass the RESTART Act; (3) fix the CARES Act by passing the Mixed Earner Pandemic Unemployment Act; (4) expand the Saves Our Stages Act; (5) expand employer retention tax credits and pass a 100% COBRA premium subsidy; and (6) pass the Performing Artist Tax Parity Act and the HITS Act.
The coalition has routinely called on Congress to act–sending letters to leadership throughout the spring and summer as well as organizing MusicCovidRelief.com, a central repository to help the music community access aid.
