The feds should establish national standards to ensure consistent service from coast to coast.
50% (35 votes)
The feds should establish a mandatory baseline, but give the states latitude to add requirements they deem necessary.
23% (16 votes)
None of the above—standards and certifications are not needed, and/or PSAPs don’t have the money to implement them.
17% (12 votes)
Each state should be required to establish standards—but the feds should stay out of the process.
6% (4 votes)
Keep the feds and states out of it--this would be handled best at the local level.

The federal gov should have the authority to establish meaningful mandatory standards for 911 telecommunicators. The state governments should establish and fund the standard with the tax they are already collecting
