Common sense reform for our music industry: President Trump signed long-awaited legislation this morning to fix outdated American music laws. The Orrin G. Hatch–Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act has gained widespread support throughout the industry, expected to benefit songwriters, artists, and fans alike. Through a simplified licensing system, songwriters will finally be paid the royalties they deserve.
President Trump hosted some special guests at the White House today. In addition to numerous artists joining the President for the signing of the Music Modernization Act, legendary Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown and rapper Kanye West visited the Oval Office to discuss prison reform and a range of other cultural and policy issues.
