Sen. Moran Co-sponsors Bill to Protect AM Radio

Joe Denoyer - April 30, 2024 10:59 am

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce – today joined his colleagues in co-sponsoring the bipartisan AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act.

This legislation would direct the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to require automakers to maintain AM broadcast radio in new vehicles at no additional charge. Similar legislation has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“AM radios connect rural communities with news, sports, weather and much more,” said Sen. Moran. “In parts of the country with limited connectivity, AM radios are often the only means to notify residents of tornadoes, snow storms and other dangerous weather. This legislation will help make certain new vehicles are equipped with an AM radio, so that folks in every corner of the country can stay connected to broadcasting and local updates during emergencies.”

This legislation was introduced by Sens. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and is now co-sponsored by 60 senators.
