House To Change Language In State Budget To Help 911 Directors

Posted July 15, 2003

— Emergency 911 directors across the state are lobbying to prevent a budget emergency.

The House has voted to change language in the state budget that could have taken money from 911 centers.

The change will allow the state to take $33 million from a wireless 911 reserve fund, instead of from incoming money.

If approved, 911 centers can continue to install technology to track cell phone calls.
