After a summer of high profile child abductions, a group of Senators is introducing legislation to establish a nationwide AMBER Alert System.
The Senators announced the legislation Tuesday in Washington.
The AMBER Alert Program uses media broadcasters and highway signs to notify the public about a missing child or child abduction.
Fourteen states, including Alabama, have AMBER Alert Plans.
The Senate bill provides for a system that would allow local police to call incidents into a central location that would then disseminate the information around the country.
The bill also includes federal grants to states for communications networks used in the recovery of missing children.
