Brief: New 911 caucus formed

Legislators Feb. 25 launched the congressional E-911 Caucus. Caucus members want to ensure emergency call centers get funding to comply with the Federal Communications Commission's Enhanced-911 services mandate. The nation's wireless carriers have until 2005 to adapt their service so that emergency dispatchers can find the location of a 911 call made on a cell phone.

Sens. Conrad Burns, R-Mont., and Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., will co-chair the caucus.
