Item 84.20 #3s

Virginia Information Technologies Agency


Page 84, after line 36, insert:

“C. During next generation 911 service planning and deployment, the 911 Services Board may reimburse a provider for its wireless E-911 CMRS costs, in lieu of reimbursing the provider's costs to deliver 911 calls to the ESInet points of interconnection pursuant to § 56-48417(D), Code of Virginia. The 911 Services Board may establish the process, criteria, and duration for such reimbursement of CMRS costs but shall continue to ensure that necessary 911 service and ESInet objectives are achieved."


(This amendment includes language to allow the 911 Services Board to continue to pay wireless carrier for E911 until the Commonwealth transitions to next generation 911 service. When the law was changed last year, the 911 Services Board anticipated that the old funding process would be eliminated sooner. This language allows the Board to deal with this delay and potential future delays.)
