Kentucky lawmakers propose new fees on cell phone bills.

The plan is to increase the fee by 30 cents. That money would help 911 centers buy new equipment and improve service.

Dispatch centers usually collect fees from land line phones. But with fewer homes having land lines, some lawmakers support charging more on cell phones.
