Contact Governor Rauner's Office In Support of SB1839

Last week IL 9-1-1 received the greatest demonstration of support possible from our IL House and IL Senate, both with super majority votes in favor of SB1839. The passing of this bill allows 9-1-1 statewide the ability to upgrade outdated technology in the 9-1-1 centers so we can receive Text to 9-1-1 and be ready to connect to the new Next Generation 9-1-1 network to be built out statewide.

On behalf of IL NENA and IL APCO we extend our appreciation and gratitude to all of the legislators who worked with us for this success and voted in favor of this SB1839,

We now look to Governor Rauner to continue his support of 9-1-1 by signing SB1839 when it reaches his desk. Please join us in making calls to Governor Rauner's office 217-782-6830 thanking him for his support of 9-1-1 and to thank him in advance for signing SB1839 to properly fund 9-1-1. Each day his office will record the calls made and track the top three call topics of the day. Let's keep 9-1-1 in focus and keep the momentum going.

Anyone who lives and votes in IL should be encouraged to make the daily call to Governor Rauner as this bill will improve the technology needed should you ever have the need to make that emergency call to 9-1-1.
