Fellow Federationists:

S. 841, the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act, 
was just passed by the House of Representatives, 
and will now go to the president to be signed into law.

I want to thank you all for your hard work over 
the past three years to protect the right to 
independent and safe travel for the blind of our 
country.  My final ask on this legislation is 
that we take a moment to contact the offices of 
our sponsors­Representative Towns (202-225-5936) 
and Representative Stearns (202-225-5744), and 
Senator Kerry (202-224-2742)­and thank them for 
their efforts to get this legislation done.

Below is a list of all cosponsors by state, so 
affiliates can make appropriate calls to members 
of their delegation that supported this 
legislation.  You may be connected to any member 
of Congress by calling the Capitol switchboard 
toll free at (866) 727-4894.  I will alert you 
all when I learn of the president’s expected signing of this legislation.

Thank you all again for your outstanding effort 
to change what it means to be blind.
