A recent House amendment to reduce the emergency 911 fees was placed on Senator Clark Jolley’s SB 1166, but Jolley reassures Oklahoma that our 911 system is secure.
“Public safety is important to Oklahomans, and by no means would we want to place it in jeopardy,” said Jolley. “I’ve addressed the amendments attached to my bill, and it has now been sent to conference where we will work to stabilize and even enhance Oklahoma’s 911 system.”
“Oklahoma’s 911 system does need to be upgraded to current standards to ensure the continued safety of all Oklahomans,” Jolley added. “Cutting the funding to this program is not prudent and will not help in moving our state forward.”
