House Energy and Commerce Committee ranking minority member Frank Pallone Jr. (D., N.J.), communications and technology subcommittee ranking minority member Mike Doyle (D., Pa.), and oversight and investigations subcommittee ranking minority member Diana DeGette (D., Colo.) have asked Comtech Telecommunications Corp. President and Chief Executive Officer Fred Kornberg to provide information about reported Comtech outages that have prevented callers from reaching 911 emergency operators.  They cited reports that local officials in Ohio, Connecticut, and South Dakota have suspended or discontinued services from Comtech because of service outages.  They asked that Comtech provide a briefing by Oct. 17.
