AMTA End of Year Update

jetdr, Thursday, December 22, 2016

 Greetings everyone,


Final Push S.RES 335

jetdr, Monday, November 21, 2016

Greetings Everyone,

The Senate AMT Day Resolution, S.RES 335, is written but needs further support to move forward. Senator Schumer's office has asked the AMTA Members to contact Republican Senators on the aviation committee. I have called and e-mailed each member voicing the AMTA's position for having this important resolution to come to a vote and asking the Senators to co-sponsor S.RES 335. I would like to ask if one of the following Senators is from your State to please call and leave a message AND send an e-mail asking them to support the AMT Day Resolution.

I have received word from Senator Roger Wicker's aid, Ellen Beares, and the Senator at this time is not going to co-sponsor S.RES 335 due to more important issues that he is working on. However, Senator Wicker will vote yes if S.RES 335 goes to the floor for a vote. I will list Ms. Beares information if you wish to call and simply remind the Senator that this resolution is important to you.

Senator Dan Sullivan's aid, Scott Leaphard, has contacted me saying the Senator will vote for S.RES 335 when it goes for a vote. So if you contact Mr. Leaphard thank him for the Senator's support.
