(Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2013)
Continuation of current practices.
Notwithstanding any other
provision of this Act, a unit of local government or emergency telephone
system board providing wireless 9-1-1 service and imposing and collecting a
wireless carrier surcharge prior to July 1, 1998 may continue its practices of
imposing and collecting its wireless carrier surcharge, but in no event shall
that monthly surcharge exceed $2.50
per commercial mobile radio service (CMRS)
connection or in-service telephone number billed on a monthly basis.
For mobile telecommunications services provided on and after August 1, 2002,
any surcharge imposed shall be imposed based upon the municipality or county
that encompasses the customer's place of primary use as defined in the Mobile
Telecommunications Sourcing Conformity Act.
In addition to any other lawful purpose, a municipality with a population over 500,000 may use the moneys collected under this Section for any anti-terrorism or emergency preparedness measures, including, but not limited to, preparedness planning, providing local matching funds for federal or State grants, personnel training, and specialized equipment, including surveillance cameras as needed to deal with natural and terrorist-inspired emergency situations or events.
