Almost one year since the false missile alert sent Hawaii into a frenzy, the U.S. Senate is making sure that future alerts are more effective.

Senators unanimously passed the Reliable Emergency Alert Distribution Improvement or "READI" Act.

Hawaii U.S. Senator Brian Schatz and two other senators introduced the bill to ensure everyone gets the alerts next time.

The READI act eliminates the option to opt out of receiving alerts, repeat them and send it out on all platforms.

It would also report false alerts and allow it to be tracked back to where it came from.
