2004 Senate Bill 1015

Public Act 89 of 2004

  1. Introduced by Sen. Deborah Cherry (D) on February 25, 2004, to transfer $12 million of the revenue collected from a 52-cent per month cell phone tax, which is supposed to be used to create an enhanced 9-1-1 emergency phone service that works with cell phones all over the state, to instead make payments on money owed for the construction of state police radio towers and related systems. These payments now come out of the state general fund, so the transfer has the effect of using 9-1-1 cell phone tax revenue to make more general fund money available for other uses.
    • Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on February 25, 2004.
