Sure, here's a strong, clear signal:

I strongly support the House/NIH proposal to mandate the self-archiving of
NIH funded research.

I have suggested a small amendment that would make the proposal even
stronger and more effective (drop the PMC stipulation and just mandate
self-archiving). To (try to) amend is not to oppose but to (try to)
ameliorate. I hope that small amendment will be adopted, but even if it
is not, I strongly support the House/NIH proposal, as it is.
