May 9, 2014 — I want to thank my constituents who reached out to me in support of this petition. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Kari Hunt during this difficult time.
Like proponents of “Kari’s Law,” I also believe that our emergency-response system should be user-friendly and easy to navigate. The petition’s supporters raised some good points about how this legislation could improve the emergency-response system in the United States. And I look forward to working with my colleagues in the 113th Congress to improve the current system.
I appreciate all of your thoughts and suggestions. Should legislation that would improve the 911 system reach the House floor, I will be sure to keep your support of “Kari’s Law’ in mind.
