Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding Senate Passage of the READI Act

“NCTA commends Senators Schatz, Thune and Wicker for leading passage of the READI Act of 2018, which focuses on developing guidance and best practices for state and local governments to improve emergency alerts, particularly to address the issuance of false alerts. As long-standing participants in the nation’s Emergency Alert System (EAS), cable operators appreciate Congress’ efforts to improve coordination between federal and local authorities and to ensure the public receives accurate and relevant emergency and public safety information in their local communities.”
