911 call centers to share more than $2.9 million

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear says Kentucky's 911 call centers will receive more than $2.9 million as a result of a ruling on litigation initiated by a state board.

The governor's office said Tuesday the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that TracFone Wireless Inc. improperly withheld payment of 911 service fees to the state's Commercial Mobile Radio Services Board.

The company disputed the application of the state 911 fee on prepaid cellphone service.

Beshear's office says that in total, the state has recovered more than $4 million in unremitted state-required 911 cellphone fees.

The recovered funds will be divided based on a formula used to distribute funds received by the CMRS Board from a state 911 fee of 70 cents per month on cell phones.
