AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act

To: Sen. Durbin, Rep. Schakowsky, Sen. Duckworth

From: A constituent in Chicago, IL

April 29

I’m writing about the importance of preserving AM radio stations for dependable news, traffic, sports, weather and vital emergency updates. Unlike satellite radio or streaming, local broadcast radio is always available with no cellular data, subscription or signal required. Despite this, some auto manufacturers have recently removed AM radio from their electric vehicle models. Numerous lawmakers, regulators and former FEMA administrators agree that AM radio is critical for ensuring information can reach the public during times of crisis. Taking AM radio out of cars will put Americans at risk. Because of the critical service AM radio provides, I am asking that you urge automakers to keep AM in all cars. Please support local radio stations and their listeners, especially those living in or traveling through rural and remote areas, by cosponsoring the AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act ( S 1669/ HR 3413) to preserve AM radio in all vehicles. Thanks!
