*Let Congress Hear From You: Just Say No to Rest Area Commercialization*

President Trump has asked Congress to pass legislation that will allow
states to create private / public partnerships to commercialize the
interstate rest areas. If Congress does pass such legislation, several
hundred blind entrepreneurs will lose their livelihoods as travel plazas
with fast food establishments and other retail outlets replace their
vending machines. The National Association of Blind Merchants joins other
national organizations such as the National Association of Truck Stop
Operators, National Association of Convenience Stores, and National
Automatic Merchandising Association in opposing such legislation. Congress
needs to hear from every blind entrepreneur in the country as well as their
friends and families. Congress needs to know how such legislation will
impact the lives of blind people. Click on https://nfb.constituentvoice.
congress/write, fill in your contact information, and hit “Submit.” A
letter from you will be generated and sent to both of your U.S. Senators
and your member in the House of Representatives. Then ask your friends and
families to do the same. Post it on social media. Let’s generate thousands
of letters.

*The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.*
