  • Senators Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) and Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) introduced legislation (S 2061) last week to accelerate the deployment of next-generation 911 (NG-911) services. If passed, the bill would extend the federal NG 911 grant program for five additional years and would decrease the programs matching requirements. Funds remitted under the program would be limited to use for NG 911-related projects and could not be used for other projects, including the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) system.
