To repeal the authority of the Michigan Public Service Commission to impose rules on businesses and organizations with multiline telephone systems, and instead spell out the relevant rules in state statute (law). Specifically, the bill would require businesses or other organizations that have a multiline telephone system to install additional equipment that reveals where in the building a 911 call comes from, subject to various facility size thresholds. Among other details, the mandate would extend only to locations with more than 7,000 square feet of "work space," but "single-floor locations that have less than 20,000 square feet of work space and fewer than 20 communications devices" would be exempt. The bill was introduced in response to rules that have been promulgated under a 2016 law
that critics say far exceed the scope envisioned by the authors of that law.
