From the beginning, he was part of the work of the Parliamentary Subcommittee for the drafting of an Artist’s Statute, where he was in direct contact with all the parliamentarians of the different political forces to convey the proposals and needs of professional musicians. Once the report was approved by the Congress of Deputies, he led the State Platform for Music (PLAM) and promoted the creation of the Musicians’ Union (UdM), whose objective, among others, is to make the Artist’s Statute a reality.
