The PNA legislative affairs team advocates for public policy serving the business interests of local news media and championing legislation that fosters essential, robust and compelling journalism. Key issues are:

  • Keeping public notices in newspapers of general circulation.
  • Pursuing improvements and updates to the Right-to-Know Law and Sunshine Act.
  • Protecting First Amendment freedoms.
  • Promoting open, accessible and accountable government.
  • Passing legislation that provides economic and tax incentives for local news organizations and the small businesses that support them through advertising in local news publications.
