Your best bet would be to contact your congressmen or congresswoman, and urge them to pass H.R. 1174. I received a response to an e-mail that I sent to my Senator from Florida
that mentioned it is presently being reviewed by the House Financial Service Commitee. They are the people right now that are responsible for recommending passage of this bill. You can go to the PPA website and send a letter to your lawmaker. If you haven't done that already, then you should.
I doubt very much that President Obama is very much interested in the bill at this time, because it is still stuck in the House of representatives. There is very little he can do about it anyways, since he is not a lawmaker .
