First introduced in December 3, 2015 to the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressman Louie Gohmert, Kari’s Law is a bipartisan bill that would not require callers to dial a postfix or prefix just to reach 9-1-1. It was based on the 2013 murder case of Kari Rene Hunt that ended horribly after Kari’s daughter (9 years old) was not able to reach the emergency services due to the MLTS (Multi-line Telephone System) of the hotel that they were staying in and where Kari was murdered by her estranged husband. More about this story in this page.
And last February 11, 2016, it finally went through the Senate with the help of Senators Deb Fischer and Amy Klobuchar.
