Important Information regarding changes in Ohio’s 9-1-1 laws and 9-1-1 program administration effective September 29, 2013

Sub House Bill 59, as passed by the 130th General Assembly, establishes the oversight of 9-1-1 services with the Statewide Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network Steering Committee (Steering Committee).

Among other things, the new law replaces the 9-1-1 Service Program housed in the Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) and the position of Ohio 9-1-1 Coordinator (originally set for repeal on January 1, 2014) with the 9-1-1 Program Office led by an administrator who is appointed by the Director of the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) and who reports to the State Chief Information Officer at DAS.  Furthermore, the law also repeals sections 5507.65 and 5507.66 of the Revised Code, which respectively establish the Ohio 9-1-1 Council and the Wireless 9-1-1 Advisory Board.   

DAS and the Steering Committee have entered into an agreement with the PUCO under which the PUCO will continue to collect wireless 9-1-1 charges as described in Section 128.46 of the Revised Code as well as disburse wireless E9-1-1 funds based on the methodology described in Section 128.55(A) of the Revised Code until December 31, 2013.  Accordingly, wireless service providers are to continue remitting wireless 9-1-1 charges to the PUCO until that date.  

If you have any questions, regarding changes to Ohio’s 9-1-1 laws or the duties of the administrator and/or the Steering Committee, please contact Jeff Smith at 614-466-8862 or Jeff.Smith@ohio.gov.

Important Information on New Law

Sub House Bill 360 and its companion provisions in House Bill 472, as passed by the 129th General Assembly extended the funding mechanism for wireless enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) service in Ohio. As you know, this charge, entitled “State/Local Wireless E9-1-1 Costs”, has appeared on wireless customers’ bills and has been remitted to our office since 2005. This legislation reduces the monthly surcharge from 28 cents ($.28), which was due to sunset December 31, 2012, to 25 cents ($.25) with no sunset provision. This bill also establishes a Prepaid Wireless 911 Surcharge of .50% at point-of-sale to become effective January 1, 2014. Prior to this date, Prepaid Wireless Service Providers are expected to collect and remit the surcharge pursuant to one of the two methods set forth in the bill. This bill was signed by Governor John Kasich on December 20, 2012 and became effective upon signing. You should continue remitting this charge to the Public Utilities Commission Office without interruption at the rate of $.25 per line. Please see the updated form below, which replaces all previous versions.
