Do you know what this bill will do? It addresses copyright law where orphaned works are concerned. It could make it easier for people/businesses who want to use a piece of art they can't easily find the copyright holder of...with limited consequences. It would also change the level of recovery that could be obtained by artists who are successful in litigating infringement violations.

I've just written my state's senators about the bill and encourage you to research this legislation, think about its implications, and consider writing your senators about it as well.
