Barry County Emergency Services Executive Director Mike Phillips was present today when Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed several bills into law in Springfield, including one impacting 911 across the state. The governor signed House bill 1456 into law at the Greene County Public Safety Center Friday morning.
The new law will allow each county a choice of implementing a tax on any device that can contact 911, including cell phones. Missouri House Representative Jeanie Lauer has been trying to get the bill passed for several years. She attended the ceremony.
Missouri is currently the only state not collecting a tax or fee on wireless devices for 911 services, although more than 80-percent of 911 calls come from a wireless device. Governor Parson says this new law will modernize the 911 system statewide.
"House Bill 1456 brings Missouri into the 21st century, preparing the way for all Missourians to have quick access to our emergency response professionals." said Gov. Parson.
