Tony Exum, D-Colorado Springs & Polly Lawrence, R-Littleton; Sens. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs & Irene Aguilar, D-Denver Meghan Dollar mdollar@cml.org HB 18-1184 creates a Colorado next generation 911 board (board) in CDPS. The board's purpose is to lead the planning for, implementation of, and transition to a sustainable next generation 911 service in Colorado. CML believes this is a positive step to further 9-1-1 in Colorado and a municipal representative will be on the board. Some 911 authorities have expressed concerns with the make-up of the proposed board as well as other issues. The CML Policy Committee voted to provide staff with discretion as stakeholders gather to discuss their concerns with the creation of the board.
