Legislation designed to promote the transition from legacy 911 systems to next-generation 911 (NG911) platforms “as soon as practicable” is expected to be introduced by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) during the next few weeks, according to multiple Beltway sources.

Draft legislation released this week by the two senators would designate would establish a target date for “full implementation” of NG911 services, although that target date has not been determined.
