JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are seeking to allow new charges on cellphones and wireless devices to help improve the state's 911 system.
Public safety officials say many counties cannot identify the location of someone who uses a cellphone to call 911.
Legislation advancing this year would establish a 3-percent charge on prepaid wireless devices. Proceeds would go for the poison control center and for counties to improve 911.
The proposals also would give counties a new 911 funding option by permitting a monthly fee on devices that can contact 911. The fee would be capped at $1.50 and require voter approval. Counties currently can assess a fee on landline phones or a sales tax. Counties would not be permitted to combine funding options.
First responders in O'Fallon, Missouri held a tribute this morning to honor the memories of the victims of the 9/11.
At 8:30, the police department gathered at a memorial in downtown O'Fallon that is made of steel recovered from the World Trade Center. The piece is called "A Tirbute to First Responders".
Police Chief Roy Joachimstaler has remembrance of his fallen brethren, "They didn't know what they were getting into that day, like many of us when we go to work in the morning, but they stepped up to the plate and did what they had to do".
The ceremony included a rifle salute and moment of silence.
NEW YORK (AP) - Sept. 11 victims' loved ones will gather at ground zero to commemorate the attacks' anniversary with the reading of names, moments of silence and serene music that have become tradition.
At Wednesday's ceremony on the 9/11 memorial plaza, relatives will recite the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died when hijacked jets crashed into the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Pa.
The Pentagon and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville also plan name-reading, wreath-laying and other tributes.
The anniversary is expected to be the last before the Sept. 11 museum opens at ground zero. That's due this spring.
Changes also are coming at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville. Officials gathered there Tuesday to mark the start of construction on a visitor center.
