AN ACT CONCERNING THE EMERGENCY 9-1-1 SURCHARGE AND MISUSE OF THE E 9-1-1 SYSTEM.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7408

File Copy No.: 539

House Calendar No.: 158

OFA Fiscal Note

REVENUE INCREASE

The amendment makes changes to the calculation used to determine the amount of money that is deposited into the Enhanced 9-1-1 Telecommunications Fund. Under the amendment, the amount deposited each month is calculated by dividing the total earned prepaid wireless telephone services revenue by forty (rather than fifty in the original bill) , and multiplied by the amount of the 9-1-1 fee. Since the revenue is divided by forty rather than fifty, it is anticipated that the amendment will result in a revenue increase to the Enhanced 9-1-1 Telecommunications Fund. Since the number of prepaid wireless customers is unknown, the increase in revenue is indeterminate. The amendment makes various other changes, which are not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose.
