Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2/Aeromedical Reform: Keep Pushing!
April 16, 2015 - Nearly 20,000 letters have been received in congressional offices from EAA members urging support for the bipartisan Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 that includes the vital aeromedical reform measures. That’s terrific! It also helps EAA’s advocacy team as we urge more lawmakers to sign as co-sponsors to the bill in the House and Senate.
There’s something that works even better than thousands of e-mail messages, though – a personal call or note to your lawmaker’s office. Or, chatting with your representative or senator (and their staff) during district listening sessions or public appearances. You can find contact information for your representative and senators through EAA’s Rally Congress website.
If your local lawmakers have already signed on as co-sponsors of the bill, be sure to thank them. If they haven’t signed on yet, ask them to support their constituents who fly by backing H.R. 1062 (in the House) or S. 571 (in the Senate).
Your D.C. lawmakers will be in their home areas during the upcoming summer recesses. Many of them are at public venues, connecting with voters and constituents.
The Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 is a measure you have been demanding as an aviation community. It will take the help of every EAA member to get it passed. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
