Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL), is still not supporting H.R. 1301 / S.253 the Amateur Radio Parity Act.
In fact, Senator Nelson has placed a “hold” on the legislation, effectively barring consideration of the Bill despite its widespread bipartisan support.
If this hold isn’t removed, the
bill will die in the Senate and require the process to completely start over
when the new Congress begins on January 1, 2017.
You are one of well over 40,000 licensed Amateur Radio operators living in Florida.
Many of you already live in
deed-restricted communities, and that number grows daily.
We need you to reach out to Senator Nelson TODAY! Right away. We know that thousands of you have written to the Senator.
NOW IS THE TIME TO CALL HIM ON THE PHONE, tell him you’re a constituent, that you support H.R. 1301 and S.253,
that he stop blocking the Bill, and to support the legislation to its passage.
Here are his phone numbers. Please call your local office AND the Washington D.C. office.
