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 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.
