THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER GREAT STATE CONFERENCE WATCH FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2023 EVENT IN COMING MONTHS
9-1-1 SAVES ACT UPDATE
The Next APCO/NENA Meeting Van Dyk Convention Center
460 W. Western Avenue
September date/time TBD
On July 14, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a major legislative package, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2023, with an amendment that would direct the Office of Management and Budget to classify public safety telecommunicators as “Protective Service Occupations” in the Standard Occupational Classification. Passage of this provision into law would have the same effect as passage of the 9-1-1 SAVES Act. In recent years, the House has passed an initial version of the NDAA with a reclassification provision, but due to the nature of the NDAA and its complex negotiation process, the final version has never included reclassification language. Nonetheless, this is a positive step, and APCO will be advocating for the reclassification language to be included in any version that moves forward. Stay tuned for further updates.
