NYSBA will be taking a delegation of AM radio broadcasters to Washington DC next week to lobby in favor of the “AM Radio in Every Vehicle Act” (H.R. 3413 and S. 1669). Our goal is to convince the entire NY delegation to co-sponsor the legislation.
We will be meeting with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s office. We are continuing to set up meetings but have already scheduled meetings with the following offices: Rep. Marc Molinaro, Brian Higgins, Rep. Dan Goldman, Rep. Brandon Williams, Rep. Anthony Garbarino, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Rep. Yvette Clarke, Rep. Claudia Tenney, Rep. Grace Meng, Rep. Nick Langworthy, Rep. Mike Lawler, Rep. Nick Lalota, and Rep. Pat Ryan. Additional meetings are being scheduled.
Today there are 49 members of Congress supporting H.R. 3413 including Rep. Claudia Tenney, Rep. Nick Langworthy, and Rep. Nicole Malliotakis from New York. There are 11 cosponsors of the Senate Bill S.1669.
We will report the results of our meetings in future editions.
