The House communications and technology subcommittee plans to hold a hearing on Sept. 14 on three public safety communications bills. The hearing is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. in Room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The bills are HR 6424, the 9-1-1 Fee Integrity Act, which was introduced by subcommittee Vice Chairman Leonard Lance (R., N.J.) and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.); HR 5700, the National Non-Emergency Mobile Number Act, which was introduced by Reps. Susan Brooks (R., Ind.) and Eshoo; and HR 6003, the Anti-Swatting Act of 2018, which was introduced by Rep. Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.).
“As we approach the 17th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on our nation, we are reminded of the critical role that our communications networks play in keeping Americans safe. I am pleased that members of the subcommittee from both sides of the aisle have come together on legislation to strengthen the 9-1-1 system and public safety communications,” said subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.).
