  • The Association of Public- Safety Communications Officials’ international chief lobbyist, Jeff Cohen, announced last week at the annual APCO Conference and Exhibition that he is hopeful that next generation 911(NG-911) legislation will press forward through Congress. He stated that he has never seen such bipartisan interest in both the House and Senate regarding this topic. While he didn’t have any insight into when the legislation may advance, he did note that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology held a hearing in March to discuss NG-911 issues.
