DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


PSAP funding. Authorizes counties (other than Marion County) to adopt an additional local option income tax rate under the county adjusted gross income tax or the county option income tax laws, without first adopting additional tax rates for property tax relief if the revenue is used to fund the operations of the public safety answering points (PSAPs) in the county. Requires a political subdivision that operates a PSAP receiving the income tax revenue to reduce its property tax levy for funding a PSAP by the estimated amount of local option income taxes that the PSAP will receive in the ensuing calendar year. Provides that the additional rate is subject to the maximum rate of 0.25% that current law imposes on additional rates for public safety. Changes the permitted uses of revenue used to fund PSAPs. Adds two members to the wireless enhanced 911 advisory board. Increases the wireless emergency enhanced 911 fee from $0.50 to $1.25. Increases a provider's collection allowance proportionately. Increases the enhanced prepaid wireless charge from $0.25 to $1.25. Removes the wireless enhanced 911 advisory board's discretion to adjust the fees. Repeals the conditional expiration of the enhanced prepaid wireless charge.
