In a prior blog we notified you of the pending approval of the Amateur Radio Parity Act S. 1685 by the Senate Committee on Commerce, and urged a call to the committee members. The bill has since passed the committee. However, some senators have opposed the bill on the basis that it goes a step too far as written. As a reminder, the bill will impact a community association’s right to require prior approval for, and otherwise regulate, the installation of HAM radio towers and antennas.
Options for this bill at this time are:
- The companion bill, H.R. 1301, may be referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee for debate, or
- The legislation may be amended and proceed to the Senate floor for a vote.
We encourage you to once again act now to contact your senator letting them know your opposition to the Amateur Radio Parity Act S. 1685 as written.
