AM Radio Legislation Gains Additional Support


We are pleased to report that the AM Radio in Every Vehicle Act (H.R. 3413) continues to gain support. In the U.S. House of Representatives, the legislation now has 107 cosponsors. Most recently, Congressman Anthony D’Esposito (R. Long Island) has “signed on” to the legislation. All eight members of the U.S. House of Representatives from New York are supporting the bill. As you can see, there is strong bipartisan support for keeping AM radio in the dashboard. The following members of the NY delegation have signed on to the House bill (H.R. 3413):

  • Rep. D'Esposito, Anthony [R-NY-4]

  • Rep. Espaillat, Adriano [D-NY-13]

  • Rep. Langworthy, Nicholas A. [R-NY-23]

  • Rep. Malliotakis, Nicole [R-NY-11]

  • Rep. Meng, Grace [D-NY-6]

  • Rep. Nadler, Jerrold [D-NY-12]

  • Rep. Tenney, Claudia [R-NY-24]

  • Rep. Tonko, Paul [D-NY-20]

In addition, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has “signed on” to the bill in the Senate (S. 1669). Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer expressed his support for AM radio during our meeting with him in D.C. We are in contact with all members of the NY delegation on this important issue.


Support for the bill is wide-ranging including support from a diverse group of organizations:

  • National Association of Broadcasters

  • National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters

  • National Religious Broadcasters

  • International Association of Fire Chiefs

  • National Emergency Management Association

  • International Association of Emergency Managers

  • National Association of Counties

  • National Urban League

  • Multicultural Media, Telecom, and Internet Council

  • Screen Actors Guild-American Foundation for Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA)

  • AARP

Also, CBS Sunday Morning had an excellent segment on the AM radio issue. You can see the segment here. sophospsmartbannerend
