You dont suppose the disapproval is biased on the assumption that it would be overturned?

I think if the state decided to start charging every repeater owner $1000 to $1500 every month for rent that it would be catastrophic to all two meter activities in the state.

The level of activity is already suffering without adding rent.
In addition, maybe the opposition is politically driven. Sometimes people make a decision to join an idea made from one side over another biased on whether or not the idea stems from a conservative or liberal.
