> Greetings,
> At this time when we are all staying home much more there is a lot we can do to advance our National Federation of the Blind national legislation. We can email and call our Senators and Representatives to thank those who have cosponsored our bills and to urge more of them to sign on as cosponsors. We will focus on one bill each week for the next three weeks. I will list the bill we are focusing on at this time, cosponsors for that bill, sample language for asking Senators and Representatives to cosponsor the bill and their staff contact information. I will also provide a link to a website to help you determine which Congressional District you live in and a link to the 2020 Washington Seminar page which contains fact sheets for all of our bills. You can call to  leave a message or send an email. If you send an email please cc me at mjc59 at comcast.net<mailto:mjc59 at comcast.net>.
> Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA) (H.R. 2086/S. 815)
> Please thank the following Representatives. You don’t have to be from their districts to thank them.
> H.R. 2086 - Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA): Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, District 1
> Sample Language for Requesting Cosponsors
> Note: You should only contact the Representative for your Congressional District. It is also good to add a sentence about how this bill will help you.
> ATAA - House of Representatives:  Please cosponsor H. R. 2086, the Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA). The cost of critical access technology is out of reach for most blind Americans. By providing a refundable tax credit for qualifying purchases, Congress will make it more feasible for individuals to purchase needed technology. This will increase employment of blind people.
