Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning A Clarification Of The General Assembly's Intent To Maintain The Public Utilities Commission's Authority Over Basic Emergency Services While Prohibiting The Regulation Of Internet-Protocol-Enabled Services By Defining The Term "Basic Emergency Service" In A Manner That Is Consistent With Such Intent.

The bill defines "basic emergency service" to mean the aggregation and transportation of a 911 call by a basic emergency service provider (BESP) to a point of interconnection with a public safety answering point (PSAP), regardless of the technology used by the BESP to provide the service, but does not include:

  • The portion of a 911 call provided by an originating service provider through use of voice-over-internet-protocol service, internet-protocol-enabled service, or commercial mobile radio service;
  • The services provided by an intermediary aggregation service provider;
  • The delivery of a 911 call from the originating service provider or an intermediary aggregation service provider to a point of interconnection with the BESP; or
  • The delivery of a 911 call from the point of interconnection between the BESP and a PSAP to the PSAP facility that receives and processes the 911 call.
