LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Prepaid cell phone customers in Kentucky will pay an extra 93 cents to support local 911 emergency services under a bill signed into law by Gov. Matt Bevin.
The extra fee will be assessed every time those customers purchase minutes.
The bill goes into effect in January.
Land line and regular cell phone users already pay the fee.
Another bill signed by the governor on Wednesday sweetens an economic incentives package aimed at swaying AK Steel to rejuvenate idled operations at its Ashland steel mill.
The bills are among dozens of measures signed into law by Bevin in recent days.
So far, the Republican governor has vetoed four bills and parts of a fifth measure.
