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.
