New 911-Emergency System Bill Signed into Law

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed Senate Bill-50 into law Wednesday – it will be a law Brownback says that will make it possible for emergency responders to invest in the technology they need to respond.

The new law specifically addresses the state’s emergency 911-system and applies to all modes of service, including telephone, cell phones, voice over Internet Protocol, prepaid wireless and other service capable of contacting 911-call centers.

Among the things SB-50 does is impose a 911 fee of 53-cents per month per subscriber to cover costs required to operate 911-call centers across the state.

SB-50 goes into effect upon publication in the Kansas Register, however, many sections of the new law will not take effect until January 1st, 2012.
