State legislators Thursday argued whether or not to mandate cell phone companies charge a 9-1-1 emergency tax. Lindsay Shively has the story.
Democratic Sen. Wayne Goode from St. Louis County says cell phone companies should consider the 9-1-1 emergency service a cost of business. Rep. Sen. Jon Dolan from St. Charles says that is not the solution.
Legislators set the amendment aside and agreed to seek a compromise. From the state Capitol, I'm Lindsay Shively.
