Hello, fellow Federationists. 
We are apparently making progress with the senate version of Space Available. We have senators on board with us, but the staff who write the legislation had some sort of technical problem with the language and it needs to be amended. 
The house version is fine, so there's no need to worry about it. 
We are asking members to contact their senators and ask them to co-sponsor S 2596, Space Available. An amendment to the bill is forthcoming, and I'll post more info as I get it from National. 
Senator Blumenthal is a member of the Armed Forces committee. Senator Murphy is not. However, please contact both and urge them to co-sponsor S 2596, and support its coming amendment, and to include this legislation in the National Defense Authorization Act. 
The main number for the capital switchboard is 202-224-3121. The senators' websites are belw. 


Thanks for all your good work so far.
