Weather Radio in Manufactured Homes could Become Federal Law

From Alabama, the Birmingham News reports that Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) has initiated legislation that would require new manufactured homes to have weather alert radios installed in them by the manufacturer.  The same bill passed in the House in 2007, but it did not make it out of the Senate.  The bill would cost the manufacturer $30-50 for each home, and would broadcast nearby weather conditions from the National Weather Service.  It is based on a state law in Indiana.
