Your submission may time out due to slow internet connection speeds.  If this happens, you can wait a few minutes and submit your form again.  If you have many users on a DSL or cable connection you may want to try submitting your form earlier or later in the day when there aren’t as many users accessing the connection.

If you continue to receive time out or error messages, several factors may be causing the problem:

      Transmittals are being restricted to trusted sites.  Some users are restricted to submitting only to trusted sites.  Adding ”LD.CONGRESS.GOV” to the list of trusted sites on your browser will allow you to submit the form;

      Virus protection restrictions.  Some 3rd party virus scanning and firewall products will restrict you from sending files over the internet.  Please review the security settings in any virus scanner and firewall applications and make the appropriate adjustments to allow transmission of files to ”LD.CONGRESS.GOV”;

      Network restrictions.  Some registrants have firewall restrictions from within their network that do not allow users to transmit files over the internet.  If you receive any one of the following messages you are being blocked by your firewall:
