Legislative Update - January 6th, 2023

leg_update

The IL NENA and IL APCO Joint Legislative Committee has learned about an existing amendment that addresses the 9-8-8 sweep.

House Amendment 2 to Senate Bill 1720 has been filed which effectively strikes the language from the Budget Implementation Bill (BIMP) passed earlier this spring that transferred money from the Statewide 9-1-1 Fund to the new 9-8-8 Fund. This HA2 has been cleared from committee and will need to pass the House before heading to the Senate for a final vote. The link to the amendment is included below. The 9-1-1 portion is on pages 24-25. IL APCO and IL NENA will continue to track this amendment.

There is a possibility this may end up in HB 5052, senate amendment #1.

Thank you to all who have continued to stay involved and contribute to making sure 9-1-1 surcharge is not diverted.
