The Illinois General Assembly voted to increase a fee on cell phone bills in order to fund 911 services.
Negotiators involved with the legislation say Gov. Bruce Rauner tried to pull Republican support because he didn't want to give Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel a victory. But GOP lawmakers voted in favor of the measure, which includes a fee increase in Chicago.
Rep. Chad Hays, R-Caitlin, said that, without the fee increase, 911 services would be on life support.
