A companion Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2015 bill has been introduced in the US Senate. Mississippi Republican Sen Roger Wicker introduced S. 1685 on June 25, with Sen Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat of Connecticut, as the initial cosponsor. The Senate bill joins an identical measure in the US House, H.R. 1301, which was introduced in March. Both measures would direct the FCC to extend its rules relating to reasonable accommodation of Amateur Service communications to private land-use restrictions.
“Introduction of the Senate bill is a huge step toward achieving fairness for amateurs affected by private land-use regulation,” said ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN. “For them and for the future of Amateur Radio, I thank everyone who contributed to making this progress. Now let’s finish the job!”
After two readings, S. 1685 was referred to the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, chaired by Sen John Thune (R-SD).
The House version of The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2015 has attracted support from 83 cosponsors, as of June 26.
