Client Alert

Brownstein Client Alert, September 10, 2018

Congress directed the agency to take this action as part of the RAY BAUM’S Act adopted earlier this year. The FCC also proposes rules to implement the Kari’s Law Act, also enacted earlier this year. Kari’s Law, which we summarized in a previous alert, mandates direct 911 dialing.
