Update: the 9-1-1 SAVES Act has now been re-introduced in both the House and Senate with bipartisan support. If enacted, this bipartisan legislation would require the Office of Management and Budget to categorize public safety telecommunicators as Protective Service Occupations (rather than administrative/clerical) in the Standard Occupational Classification. As part of APCO's ongoing efforts, we have re-launched our advocacy platform to facilitate a grassroots campaign to send letters to members of Congress seeking their support. Please TAKE ACTION and contact your Representative and Senators today, and encourage your colleagues to do so as well.
