Here are some suggestions on what to say:

Hello, my name is __________ from ____________.

I'm calling to tell Representative/Senator ____________ that I support H.R. 1892, The Unlocking Technology Act, and to ask if [he/she] will co-sponsor the bill.

If passed, this bill would enable innovators to develop new technologies that can help the deaf and visually impaired, help researchers find better ways of securing our data and improving cybersecurity, and allow people to repair their electronics, cars and tractors without worrying that they are breaking the law for tinkering with software.

I’d like to ask the Representative/Senator _________ to support this bill by being a co-sponsor. Again, the bill is HR 1892.
