About the 911 Strike Force

On February 17, 2021, the Federal Communications Commission announced the establishment of the Ending 9-1-1 Fee Diversion Now Strike Force (911 Strike Force), a new federal advisory committee dedicated to studying and making recommendations to address 911 fee diversion that is, the practice of some states and jurisdictions of using the 911 fees that consumers pay on their phone bills for non-911 purposes.

Congress directed the FCC to establish the 911 Strike Force in the Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act of 2020, which is Section 902 in Division FF, Title IX of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.  Section 902 also gave the FCC additional tools to address 911 fee diversion.

The 911 Strike Force is organized under, and will operate in accordance with, the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA).



Meetings are open to the public and are broadcast live with open captioning over the Internet from the FCC Live webpage at:  http://www.fcc.gov/live.



(Note: the 911 Strike Force Report will be published on or before September 23, 2021)
