Latest Information

HR.4969
A bill with bipartisan support has been introduced in the US House
of Representatives that calls on the FCC to apply the "reasonable
accommodation" three-part test of the PRB-1 federal pre-emption
policy to private land-use restrictions. HR.4969, the "Amateur Radio
Parity Act of 2014" was introduced on June 25 at the request of the
ARRL, which worked with House staffers to draft the proposed
legislation. The bill's sponsor is Rep Adam Kinzinger (R-IL). It has
initial co-sponsorship from Rep Joe Courtney (D-CT). If the measure
passes the 113th Congress, it would require the FCC, within 120 days
of the Bill's passage, to amend the Part 97 Amateur Service rules to
apply PRB-1 coverage to include homeowners' association regulations
and deed restrictions, often referred to as "covenants, conditions,
and restrictions" (CC&Rs). Presently, PRB-1 only applies to state
and local zoning laws and ordinances.
