Action Alert - Final Push Needed on 9-1-1 Legislation
We need your help on this session’s 9-1-1 legislation.
Before we asked, “Would you hesitate to call 9-1-1 if you knew you could be charged a fee for the call?” As you know, this is the situation facing the residents of New Britain where Mayor Tim O’Brien has proposed an ordinance charging residents an additional fee for “nuisance” 9-1-1 calls.
Representative Larry Butler (D-72nd District) has sponsored a bill, HB 6015, that would prohibit municipalities from assessing these senseless fees on good faith 9-1-1 calls.
The CT General Assembly is poised to conclude their legislative business next Wednesday, June 5.
That means we only have a few days remaining to pass the 9-1-1 bill in the House and the Senate.
We need you to contact Speaker of the house Brendan Sharkey and Assistant Republican Leader Sean Williams and urge them to vote on this important piece of legislation before the session ends on Wednesday!
Don’t let public safety suffer.
Contact your legislators today and urge them to support HB 6015 before time runs out!
