NJWA recently testified before the New Jersey Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee.

We discussed the oversight and governance of the Trust Fund and made several improvement recommendations. We also discussed the status of how to manage the implementation of NextGen911 (ability to send text/photos/videos to 911). We will provide our members with a review of our presentation and the results of the committee hearing.
This is in keeping with our mission to serve our communities and state by providing information and education to legislators, municipalities, businesses and end users.
