Statement: News Media Alliance Applauds Inclusion of Support for Journalists’ Continued Operations in Russia in Federal Contracting for Peace and Security Act

The News Media Alliance applauds House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) for championing journalists by ensuring a news media carveout to H.R. 7185, the Federal Contracting for Peace and Security Act. This exemption will ensure that H.R. 7185 won’t impact the news media’s ability to continue operating in Russia.

The free flow of information is vital, and Chairwoman Maloney prioritized the heroic efforts by journalists around the globe who are risking their lives to ensure the continued dissemination of accurate information. The Alliance supports the journalism exemption in H.R. 7185 and looks forward to working with Congress and the Administration to protect the free and independent press.
