A couple of cheerful items crossed my screen on Monday.
First, Pres. Trump reinstated the “Mexico City Policy”, which bars international NGOs that perform or promote abortions from receiving US government funds (i.e., taxpayer dollars). My only regret is that it wasn’t reinstated before the Woman March event.
Second, the Amateur Radio Parity Act, HR-555, has passed the House of Representatives and is now on the way to the Senate. The bill passed by unanimous consent late Monday afternoon. H.R. 555 calls on the FCC to establish rules prohibiting the application of deed restrictions that preclude Amateur Radio communications on their face or as applied. Deed restrictions would have to impose the minimum practicable restriction on Amateur Radio communications to accomplish the lawful purposes of homeowners association seeking to enforce the restriction.
There were other positive developments as well as this new administration and new legislative year get underway.
So, Monday was a good day.
