Today's Mission: Call Senator Fitzgerald regarding Low Power FM

Posted by Mitchell - July 14, 2004 (entry 210)

A petition campaign is underway to help create over 1000 new low-power FM radio stations across the United States. The petition helped build momentum in Washington, and the legislation is now heading to a Senate Committee that includes a Senator from Illinois.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to support the efforts of Low Power broadcasters from Illinois by calling Senator Peter Fitzgerald's office right now, at 202-224-2854. This is the most effective way to influence members of Congress (if you're not a lobbyist and actually count yourself as a member of the human race). Tell them you are a constituent and that you're calling to support Senate Bill 2505 -- the expansion of Low Power FM radio in Illinois.

This message will not self-destruct in seven seconds, so forward this notice on to your friends. Good luck!
