We are pleased to report that the AM for Every Vehicle Act (H.R. 3413) continues to receive additional support in the House of Representatives. As we go to press 140 members of the House have endorsed the legislation. HR 3413 would require the Department of Transportation to adopt a rule stating that all vehicles sold, imported, or manufactured in the U.S. must contain AM receivers as standard equipment. This includes electric and traditional vehicles.
We are especially pleased that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R North Country) and Rep. Nick LaLota (R. Long Island) have now endorsed the legislation. Gaining Rep. Stefanik’s endorsement is important as she is one of the top four leaders among House Republicans. She is the Republican Conference Chairperson which is the organization consisting of all Republican Party members in the House.
Thirteen members of the New York House of Representatives Delegation have endorsed the legislation. This includes both Democrats and Republicans. The following members have signed on:
Rep. D'Esposito, Anthony [R-NY-4]
Rep. Espaillat, Adriano [D-NY-13]
Rep. Goldman, Daniel S. [D-NY-10]
