What is the ARRL Legislative Action Program, you ask? The ARRL Legislative Action Program is designed to make it possible

for ARRL members to promote and protect Amateur Radio through coordinated, legitimate political action at the Federal

government level. Why should I become involved in this program? Isn't talking with our Congressmen a waste of time? 

Federal Legislators frequently vote based upon their understanding of the wishes of their constituents. As a constituent, your

opinion is important to them. Elected officials view their constituents as "resources" and want to hear from them. They need

input from their constituents to gauge positions on a piece of legislation and determine how it will impact the voters in their

districts. As a licensed Amateur Radio operator, you can provide a valuable resource to your member of Congress. More often

than not, the knowledge Legislators have of Amateur Radio is fairly limited. Therefore, your combination of being a constituent

and a federally licensed operator can help make a difference by ensuring that your Congressman and staff receive the

balanced information they need to make good decisions on Amateur Radio related legislation.
