Charge money for using 9-1-1 is being considered in Missouri

cell phone 911

Counties in Missouri could tax devices that can call 9-1-1 in order to help pay for services.  That’s according to legislation being considered at the State Capital.  House bill 1573 would allow a fee to be charged of up to $1.50 per month, per device to help fund 9-1-1.  Supporters of the bill say its designed to let each county decide the best option for funding; whether that would be a land line surcharge, a sales tax or the new proposed cell phone fee.  Missouri is the only state that does not have a fee attached to cell phones.  The bill is currently being debated in the House and Senate.
