Phone carriers are fighting the FCC on 911 location improvement

I reported a while back on an FCC proposal to improve the location capabilities in mobile phones to allow 911 centers to get information on a callers floor and apartment in a multistory building. Perhaps unsurprisingly, mobile phone carriers are fighting the proposal on the grounds it’s “too hard” and “too expensive”.

Why can’t they just be honest and admit they don’t want to spend money? Residents of cities, for whom this proposal has the most potential, I guess you’re not worth it.
