2009 House Bill 5599: Authorize 9-1-1 phone tax “fund raid”

Passed 35 to 2 in the Senate on September 22, 2010 To take $5 million in the current fiscal year and $7 million in the next year from telephone tax money levied to pay for 9-1-1 emergency phone service infrastructure, and use it instead to displace state general fund money in the State Police budget, thus avoiding the need to cut or reform other state spending. The infrastructure this phone tax was intended to create was completed several years ago and the tax was supposed to end, but was extended through 2014 in 2008. There was a previous "fund raid" on this money in 2004, and another in 2006.
