Press Release

CHICAGO — Today, Congressman Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) announced that he has received a letter from Amazon.com indicating that they will expand their Prime Free Same-Day Delivery service to all residents in the City of Chicago.

After receiving this letter, Rush said, “I am pleased to see that Amazon.com and its CEO, Jeff Bezos, are doing the right thing and serving all residents of the City of Chicago. As I said on the floor of the US House of Representatives last week, ’Black Americans' dollars are just as green as any other Americans' dollars,’ and I am glad that Amazon.com recognizes that.”
