(Harrisburg) -- The public wouldn't be able to get the names or addresses of people who call 911 under a bill that's received the approval of the state House.
The House voted unanimously Tuesday to send the Senate the proposal to ban 911 centers from disclosing the callers' names, phone numbers, addresses and locations.
Supporters argue the measure would protect witnesses, and ensuring the callers' privacy would make people more likely to call 911. A similar proposal passed the House in the last legislative session but died in the Senate.
The state Commonwealth Court has ruled the York County 911 center had to disclose 911 time-response logs that include the nearest intersection.
