Establish requirement for timely payment and promulgation of reimbursement procedures with industry input.

CONCLUSION Telephone exchange companies will, as they consistently have in the past, endeavor in good faith to meet the requirements of the law enforcement community. In developing a bill that will ensure law enforcement's legitimate demands in conducting surveillance activities with future telephony technologies and services, the United States must ensure that a standard of reasonableness guide its actions.

It is important to remember that there are about 1,000 wiretaps performed each year in the United States. The government intends to spend about $125,000 par wiretap per year for the next four years, if it sticks to its budget.

While industry is willing to facilitate the objectives of law enforcement whenever feasible, we cannot afford to raise barriers to investment in and development of new telecommunications technologies and services.

Finally, USTA again acknowledges the efforts of Senator Leahy and Congressman Edwards and their staffs for their willingness to draft legislation that meets the test of time.

I thank the committee for allowing USTA to testify. I look forward to continuing the process of improving this Act to that it can meet the interests of the local exchange industry while satisfying the objectives of our nation's law enforcement community.
