The one that DID pass that may impact contesting is the 
resolution to petition the FCC to make violating the
established band plans a violation of FCC rules
(part 97.something: "good amateur practice". This is
also the subject of this month's editorial). What I'm
envisioning is a contester calling CQ on 14233 and 
getting a notice of rules violation from the FCC.
