ARRL Issues Urgent Last Call to Press for Senate Passage of the Amateur Radio Parity Act
It's now down to the wire: ARRL has issued a last call to urge their US Senators to support the Amateur Radio Parity Act (H.R. 1301) when it comes up during the "lame duck" session of Congress that adjourns in a couple of weeks. The House of
Representatives approved the bill in September, and the Senate must follow suit if the bill is to succeed. If it fails in the Senate, the entire process will have to be repeated in the new Congress. The legislation is now in the Senate in two forms - as H.R. 1301 and alternately in the packaged bill S. 253
Urging your US Senators' support is simple: Go to our Rally Congress page at, https://arrl.rallycongress.net/ctas/urge-us-senate-to-pass-amateur-radio-parity-act enter your ZIP code, fill in your name and address, press enter, and e-mails will go directly to your Senators.
