More members of the New York Congressional delegation have signed on to back the proposed merger between Sirius and XM Satellite Radio.


Reps. Yvette Clarke, Carolyn Maloney, Eliot Engel, Ed Towns and Gregory Meeks have all signed a letter backing the plan. Engel, along with Rep. Anthony Weiner, [had previously voiced their support] for the plan.


“The merger of Sirius and XM will create new opportunities for this type of diverse programming that has been overlooked by terrestrial-radio broadcasters. This merger will allow the companies to offer even more diverse content by consolidating programming and better utilizing capacity to offer even more unique and diverse programming to currently underserved populations," states the letter.


They added, "we firmly believe that allowing these satellite-radio companies to merge...is in the public interest."
