Your cell phone bill could go up to cover 911 funding. A measure that would give Missouri counties additional ways to increase 911 funding could come up in the state Senate soon. Representative Jeanie Lauer says her bill would allow counties to ask voters to approve a sales tax increase or a monthly cell phone charge. The current funding is declining because landline users are the only ones that must provide this funding. This is the fourth year that this measure has come up. Last year it died in the Senate. Lauer says she has the support to get the bill through this session.
