The Federal Communications Commission today releases to the public its fourth annual Report to Congress on State Collection and Distribution of 911 and Enhanced 911 Fees and Charges (911 Fee Report). The Commission submits this report to Congress annually pursuant to requirements imposed by the New and Emerging Technologies 911 Improvement Act of 2008 (NET 911 Act), including the requirement that the Commission report whether 911 fees and charges collected by the states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and Indian territories (states and other reporting entities) are being used for any purpose other than to support 911 and Enhanced 911 (E911) services.

For the first time this year, the Commission formally solicits public comment about the 911 Fee Report, and the information provided to the Commission by states and other reporting entities. This fourth annual 911 Fee Report covers the collection and distribution of 911 and Enhanced 911 fees and charges for the calendar year ending December 31, 2011, and was submitted to Congress on December 28, 2012.

The Report includes information regarding states and other reporting entities that have used any portion of collected 911 fees other than for the support of 911/E911 service, and can be found here.
