Wise Introduces Telephone Reliability Legislation Legislation to promote the re- liability of the nation's telephone network was introduced recently by United States Representative Bob Wise of West Virginia. The Wise bill, H.R. 344 comes in the wake of a several massive telephone outage in recent months including an AT&T power failure September 17 that grounded New York City air traf- fic for hours. Earlier in the sum- mer, on June 26, West Virginia was struck by a network break- down affecting 435,000 of the state's telephone lines. Custom- ers were prevented from making local telephone calls for more than six hours due to a software problem. Wise commented, "By my count there have been at least seven major telephone outages this year, and those are only the largest ones. No one really knows how many times service has been disrupted. That's part of the problem. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should be keeping track of telephone network failures and investigating why they keep oc- curring. My legislation would re- quire the FCC to do that." Wise chairs the House Gov- eminent Operations Subcommit- tee on Government Information, Justice, and Agriculture, which Inches 1990 Low High Preclp.
