Amateur Radio Parity Act Passes in the US House of Representatives!

“The bill is passed without objection.” With those words, Amateur
Radio history was made on September 12, when the US House of
Representatives approved the Amateur Radio Parity Act, H.R. 1301 on a
voice vote under a suspension of the rules. The focus of the campaign
to enact the legislation into law now shifts to the US Senate.

For the rest of the article, see this link:

It is imperative that you continue to send letters to your US Senators
to do everything you can to insure that S-1685 is passed as well. When
it gets done, it could be on the Presidents desk for signature by end
of year. We are so close; let’s make this last push to put everything
on the table and see that this gets done.
