Radios that do not comply with the percentage shall be punished by a fine of five to fifty UTM (monthly tax unit). In the case of a repeat offence, the UTM would double.
The next step:
The bulletin will pass to the Senate and then promulgated by the Chilean President.
According to Claudio Arriagada (MP), “this law and its enactment will ensure a very important right for artists.” This is echo by Roberto Poblete (MP), however, he acknowledged that the “percentage is still very little”.
Promoting this type of positive action may encourage under represented national and folk music. And even though it is believed that the percentage is low the measure is welcome by many. The bulletin was ratified by 63 votes in favour, 10 against, and 5 abstentions.
