(CNN) – 911 calls can show us how lives were saved, and sometimes how they could have been saved. Now, several states are considering laws that would keep the public from hearing the recordings.

David Cuillier, chairman of the Society of Professional Journalists' Freedom of Information Committee, says releasing emergency calls can do a public service. They debated the issue with us on Monday's American Morning.
