|The latest ARRL newsletter identified " Section 6414 of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 " as creating a study and a favorable view of Amateur Radio.
I am surprised that the ARRL did not identify the house and senate sponsors of this portion of the bill so members can consider these views in thier voting decisions. I could be missing this information but this seems to be somewhat of a casual attitude regarding our power of the vote and this is certainly at the other end of the spectrum (so to speak) from organizations such as the NRA which are heavily funded by PACs to offer up a nearly rabid dedicated and single issue voting population.
There must be a sensible middle ground which would benefit all of us.
