Dear Federation Family:

I hope you had a great holiday last week. Congress is back in session this week. We need to continue to build cosponsor support for the Access Technology Affordability Act (H.R. 431/S. 212). As a quick reminder we are up to 114 cosponsors in the House and 32 in the Senate. This is a terrific accomplishment but we need to do even better in order to increase the likelihood that the ATAA is incorporated into the Build Back Better Act or possibly the omnibus appropriations bill.

At the end of this email is a list of all of the Senate cosponsors followed by a list of all of the House cosponsors. If you do not see your Representative or Senator(s) on this list, then please reach out to them and urge them to cosponsor this legislation.

Even if you have already reached out to your members of Congress, it is essential that we reach out again because sometimes notes and emails are misplaced and we need to ensure our representatives in Washington receive our message. Remember, it is not just you calling and emailing, but when we all work together the full strength of the National Federation of the Blind is on display.

When you call or email, you might say the following:
"Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME], and I am a constituent of [SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE NAME]. I live in [CITY, STATE]. I would like to urge [SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE NAME] to cosponsor the Access Technology Affordability Act, S. 212/H.R. 431. This legislation removes an employment barrier commonly experienced by blind Americans who cannot afford the high cost of access technology by creating a refundable tax credit in the amount of $2,000 to offset the cost of this technology.
A current list of Senate and House cosponsors is below. You can contact your member of Congress by calling the Capitol Switchboard and asking for the office in question. The number is 202-224-3121. We have also attached contact lists for Senate and House offices to this email, but if you have any questions on office contacts, please contact Jesa Medders at jmedders at nfb.org. If you contact your senators and representative via email, please copy Jeff Kaloc at jkaloc at nfb.org. Your calls and emails do make a difference.
Thank you for all that you do,
