Thornberry Called to Testify for Bureau of Land Management Property Rights

Property rights are being called into question for land owners along the Texas-Olkahoma border, and our local congressman is stepping in.
 
The Bureau of Land Management is reviewing the border boundaries along the Red River to see if they have any claim to the property as federal land, land that has been owned by Texas families for generations.
 
The house resources committee has agreed to hold a hearing Tuesday on Congressman Mac Thornberry's bill to resolve the land dispute. 
 
"They've ask me to testify, to give some background on it. They have invited Pat Canaan who is a local land owner, also a game warden, to offer his perspective on the issue and on my bill. But then the Bureau of Land Management will also be there to testify," Thornberry said.
 
Thornberry said the proposed bill, called the Red River Private Property Protection Act, calls for quit claims deeds to be provided to any landowners who can show documented rights to the property, and prevents the BLM from managing private property in the future.
 
Thornberry calls this first reading a "key step" in moving the process forward. 

911 Network and GPS Locationing

The Panhandle Regional 911 Network is looking to make some big changes regarding the location of incoming calls. Mike Peters, 911 regional director explains....
 
"Currently, we are routing calls based on a cell sector that the cell phone tower reaches or their physical address. In the future we hope to be able to figure out the GPS, the latitude and longitude of the handset they are talking on," said Mike Peters, 911 Regional Director.
 
Peters said statewide, they're looking to transition to GPS location, but it might take a few years and millions of dollars. The 911 Network currently receives 80% of their calls from wireless phones.
