The panel, chaired by Rep Fred Upton (R-MI), will consider H.R. 1301 and an “Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute to H.R. 1301,” when it meets this week. In June, the ARRL and the Community Associations Institute (CAI) — the national association of homeowners associations (HOAs) announced that they had reached consensus on the bill’s provisions. Rep Upton called H.R. 1301 “legislation to protect the rights of Amateur Radio operators,” in a statement he released on June 22.
The full House Energy and Commerce Committee markup of the Amateur Radio Parity Act (H.R. 1301) and four other bills has been rescheduled for July 12. Originally set for June 23, the session was postponed after the committee, with most members absent, convened on June 22 for about 10 minutes to hear opening statements. If necessary, the markup session will continue into the next day.
