Letter to Chairman Pallone on 9-1-1 fee diversion


Excerpt: “According to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Eleventh Annual Report to Congress, five states diverted over $197,000,000 in 9-1-1 fees for unrelated purposes, raising questions about how this practice impacts public safety,” Walden and Latta write in the letter. “Our first responders and public safety professionals deserve better, and we urge you to bring legislation before the Committee expeditiously to end all diversion of 9-1-1 fees.”
