Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding the passage of Kari's Law (H.R. 582) in the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Kari’s Law is on its way to the President’s desk to be signed into effect. Our children should be able to dial 911 and get help on the other end of the line in a hotel or in an office. Now they can. My heart goes out to Kari’s father, Hank. What a fitting day for Kari’s Law to pass—today Kari would have been 36 years old. Happy birthday, Kari. Your legacy lives on.”

Introduced first in 2015, Kari’s Law will ensure that anyone who dials 911 can reach emergency personnel even if the phone typically requires that user to dial a prefix such as “9” or “7” to get an outside line.
