IPAWS update approved by Senate.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System has been updated, thanks to a measure sponsored by Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Ron Johnson (R-WI). The industry approves: NAB Executive Vice President/Communications Dennis Wharton commented, “NAB applauds the Senate’s bipartisan passage of this important legislation modernizing our public alert warning system. As America’s hometown ‘first informers,’ radio and television broadcasters know the crucial need for up-to-the-second information that can keep lives and property safe.”
