van-hollen.JPGThe Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has penned a letter against the proposed merger of Sirius and XM according to his office. Van Hollen was quoted as saying, "The proposed merger would eliminate competition in the satellite radio industry and the combined XM-Sirius companies would be free to raise prices, stifle innovation and reduce program diversity,"

Von Hollens comments were forwarded to Assistant Attorney General Thomas Barnett on Tuesday, September 18th, in which he also offered up his assistance in the matter.
