Governor Pat Quinn signed a measure into law that will allow the city of Chicago to increase 911 fees on landline and cell phones.
The increase will be $1.40 a month bringing the total monthly fees for each phone number to $3.90.
It’s expected to generate another $50 million dollars a year for city hall.
Quinn’s approval of the bill could be the key to another bill that would overhaul city employees pension systems.
The additional money could help the city pay more into pension funds without raising property taxes.
