Urgent: Help the Local Community Radio Act
Jump Through The Flaming Hoop of Congress!
This is it! Legislators are getting ready to go home for the
holidays, and since they tend to argue all year long, they do a
lot of the actual bill passing each year between now and
December 18, when they leave Washington.
The House and Senate could pass the Local Community Radio Act at
any moment -- if we can just get it on the agenda for next week.
Take The Leap Now! Call your Representative's office
[http://www.freepress.net/lpfm] and ask to speak to the staff
person who covers telecom issues. The LPFM Action Page
[http://www.freepress.net/lpfm] will tell you where they stand on
the bill. Then call your Senators
too! We're happy to answer questions at 215-727-9620.
Either by phone or on voicemail, tell the Congressional staffer
"I am a constituent of [Politician X] and I am calling to urge
him/her to support the Local Community Radio Act, HR1147 and
S592, which expands the Low Power FM radio service, creating new
opportunities for local media in our community. Can I count on
[Politician X] to help get this bill passed?"
Even if your Representative or Senator supports the bill, your
call will remind them to make sure our bill gets decided this
It only takes 5 minutes, so call now!
Afterwards, let us know how your call went by posting on our
and you'll be entered to win a free bag of Prometheus goodies,
including a book, a t-shirt, stickers, and more!
Thanks to everyone for helping to bring low power to the people!

P.S. We know — after nine years, we can't believe it, either. We
're pinching ourselves. But if we all make a final push to get
low power radio its day in Congress, we may finally get this
bill passed this week.
