  1. Legislative Update


The Board members identified items that might need to be addressed in future legislation.  Those items were:

  • Secondary PSAPs – the definition is good, but there are some PSAPs calling themselves secondary when they don’t meet the definition;
  • Need to define secondary, backup and unmanned PSAPs and texting in legislation;
  • Should text to 911 costs be covered by the State and added to the network cost definition;
  • Should training standards be added to draft legislation or be addressed in the report to the legislature;
  • VoIP surcharge language needed;
  • Advisory Board Makeup – add Illinois Telecommunications Association, EMS and Cable Association;
  • Change sunset date and include no sweep language;
  • Combine AR-911 with annual report;
  • Do systems still need call handling agreements;
  • Should surcharge amount be adjusted with a cap that the Board could adjust without legislative approval;
  • Should the surcharge formula change?



  1. Fiscal Updates


The Board discussed fiscal year 2017 grants and whether it should approve the entire $12.5 million available for distribution.  A motion was made by Larry Deetjen and seconded by Ken Caudle to approve $12.5 million for fiscal year 2017 grants.  The motion carried on a unanimous vote by the Board.


  1. Administrator Update


The Administrator reported that RFP evaluations are ongoing with the hope of making an award in October.  Department staff and the Administrator are working on streamlining the AR-911 with incorporation of the annual report information.  The Administrator is also researching sexual assault training efforts from California and Texas.  There is no deadline for completing the sexual assault training requirements.
