New York – Legislation is being considered pertaining to the issue with people in some Oregon counties seeing their 911 calls go unanswered. As reported by CNN, Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber is considering a measure that would allow a public safety emergency to be declared in counties in the state where this is a problem.

In addition to the declaration, a temporary income tax would also be imposed on residents in counties with budget restrictions that leave them unable to pay for public safety workers.

Amy Wojcicki, a spokesperson for the governor, is quoted in the report as saying in an email statement to CNN, “The state has an interest in maintaining a network of public safety throughout Oregon.”
