Shawn O’Donnell, K3HI, MA State Government Liaison writes on Jan. 22, 2008 at 1457 ET:
H-4477 is scheduled to be considered again by the full Massachusetts House tomorrow. I understand that a number of amendments to the original bill–at least 16 by one rep’s count–have been offered on the bill.
I received reports from several hams whose representatives claimed to have proposed an exemption for us. So a couple of the amendments probably say the same thing. Still, there may be enough amendments attached to the bill to sink it. We’ll know more by tomorrow afternoon, if they keep to their schedule.
Please pass the word–any hams who haven’t already contacted their representatives may want to do so early tomorrow. 617 722 2000 is the switchboard number.
I’ll distribute news tomorrow as soon as it becomes available.
