(Parity Act) Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017
The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017 was introduced in the US Senate on July 12, marking another step forward for this landmark legislation. The Senate bill, S. 1534, is identical to H.R. 555, which passed the US House of Representatives in January. The ARRL is urging U.S. Amateurs to contact their Senators and express their support for this bill. Click here to take action, or here for more info.
