NENA Praises 911 Fee Diversion Bill

NENA today praised the introduction of legislation (HR 6424) that is designed to prevent states from diverting 911 fees for other purposes. Rep. Chris Collins (R., NY) was joined by Reps. Anna G. Eshoo (D., Calif.) and Leonard Lance (R., N.J.) in introducing the 9-1-1 Fee Integrity Act yesterday (TR Daily, July 19). Dan Henry, director-government relations for NENA, said today that his group “applauds Reps. Collins, Eshoo, and Lance for taking this important step towards ensuring accountability in the use of state 9-1-1 fees. NENA supports all efforts to facilitate a sufficient, sustainable mechanism for funding our nation’s first … responders, both to maintain current service levels and accelerate the nationwide transition to Next Generation 9-1-1.”
