A measure was considered on Tuesday in the Missouri House to impose a tax on cell phones.
The bill would make Missouri the last state to impose the tax.
The measure would allow counties to instate a tax on any mobile device capable of contacting 911.
This would increase funding for 911 services across the state.
The bill's sponsor, Republican Jeanie Lauer said funding for 911 services is a major public safety concern.
