Sen. McCann’s statement on passage of Senate Bill 1839
SPRINGFIELD – State Sen. Sam McCann (R-Plainview) released the following statement after the Illinois Senate passed a bipartisan bill to protect 9-1-1 services.
“I am proud to be a sponsor of this legislation and to vote in the affirmative to send it to the Governor’s desk for his signature. This is about keeping our 9-1-1 services operational. Everyone knows that when there is an emergency, you dial 9-1-1 first. We cannot let those calls go unanswered due to the ongoing budget crisis.”
