SANTA FE — The New Mexico Senate has passed a bill that moves the E911 services to the Department of Information and Technology (DoIT) from the Department of Finance and Administration.  
The sponsor of the bill, Senator Gregg Fulfer said the new department is better suited to support the technical aspects of the E911 services.
“The people at 9-1-1 are the first ones  you call in a dire emergency. This bill helps the  9-1-1 service get the best equipment possible to help them provide their emergency help. The new department is better suited to provide technical backup for the emergency service agency,” Senator Fulfer said.
The bill also creates an E911 Advisory Board to advise DoIT on matters related to E911 services.
