Senior Advocacy in Action Alert
SB 636 would allow for the discontinuation of traditional landline phone service after December 31, 2016. AAAWM is concerned that seniors who rely on their landline telephone to make phone calls in emergencies or when the power is out, to monitor their medical devices, or to provide services for individuals with low hearing will be hurt by this bill. The bill is expected to be voted on in the near future. Advocates are urged to contact their legislators in the House of Representatives and ask them to protect Michigan's vulnerable seniors by opposing SB 636.
