Lawmakers plan to keep 911 cell phone fee

Cell phone users in ohio currently pay 32 cents a month on each line they own for emergency 911 service. That charge was approved by lawmakers years ago when counties were trying to create wireless emergency service in Ohio. But the fee was not meant to be permanent. It is set to expire at the end of 2008 and there's now a move underway to keep that fee in place into 2009 and beyond.
