From the Ag Information Network, I’m Bob Larson. The American Farm Bureau has adopted policy that supports a Congressional push to include AM radios in all vehicles.

AFBF Vice President of Public Policy, Sam Kieffer s

ays adopting the policy resolution gives the AFBF policy team the power to advocate with lawmakers on the issue …

KEIFFER … “Vehicle manufacturers have heard from the rural communities and agriculture in general and have made adjustments. But the adoption of this policy language means that we can get behind members of Congress who want to make sure that these communications capabilities and mechanisms are not restricted moving forward, either by government edict or by manufacturing trends.

So, Keiffer says they want to do everything they can to make sure this happens …

KEIFFER … “Again, what we’ve seen is some of the manufacturers have reacted and responded and we want to make sure that remains a priority.”

Kieffer says this is just another way for Farm Bureau to support rural families …

KEIFFER … “Farm Bureau’s a big tent organization, and if it’s important to rural communities, it’s important to us. And we appreciate the opportunity to work with all who have a vested interest in rural America, and this is just another example of that.”

That’s Sam Kieffer, AFBF Vice President of Public Policy.
