Dispatch Centers Face Tighter Finances

Emergency dispatch centers in some parts of Kentucky say they're feeling a financial pinch, because many people are dropping their land line telephones for cell phones.
Dispatch centers are partially funded through a surcharge levied on local land line services. Officials say they're now struggling to generate enough money to fund their operations. Now many are asking state lawmakers to look for new ways to fund dispatch centers.
