ARLB015 Amateur Radio Spectrum Protection Act of 2003 introduced

The Amateur Radio Spectrum Protection Act of 2003 has been
introduced in the US House of Representatives. The measure is an
ARRL legislative initiative. Florida Rep Michael Bilirakis filed the
latest version of the bill, HR 713, on February 12. It has been
referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

HR 713 is aimed at ensuring the availability of spectrum to Amateur
Radio operators. It would protect existing Amateur Radio spectrum
against reallocations to or sharing with other services unless the
FCC provides ''equivalent replacement spectrum'' elsewhere.

The previous version of the Spectrum Protection Act attracted more
than 50 cosponsors. An effort will be made to encourage additional
House members to sign onto HR 713 as cosponsors. Additional details
are on the ARRL Web site.
