JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri lawmakers are debating a cell phone tax in the Show-Me State.
If approved, the 75-cent tax could be issued by county governments to help pay for upgrades or construction of 911 call centers. The measure was proposed as more people use cell phones instead of paying for land-lines.
Cellphone companies say they support the measure, but say it would be difficult to collect the tax on a county-by-county basis.
