Federation family, 


The following is a great example of an e-mail sent to our Senators by Mike
Floyd regarding the Affordable Technology Act via both of their online
contact forms. The links to both for Senators Inhofe and Lankford are below
Mike's message. Please do this and/ or call their offices directly by
calling the switchboard at t (202) 224-3121 and ask for the office in



Dear Senator Inhofe:


I am writing as a blind constituent to urge you to co-sponsor S732, the
Access Technology Affordability Act, sponsored by Senator Boozman of
Arkansas. The blind of America are hopeful this bill will be amended to the
Senate version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. S732 will provide the blind a
better opportunity to acquire the technology necessary to compete as equals
in the job market. In turn this will mean reduced dependence on public
assistance and benefits. We want the chance to be self-supporting and
self-sufficient citizens.


Please co- sponsor S732, the Access Technology Affordability Act, vote for
it as an amendment to the Senate version of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and
please keep the additional "Standard Deduction" for the blind in the bill.


Yours with sincere thanks,


Mike Floyd,
