Medina to allocate US$50M for a 911 emergency service
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina discarded a RD$20 tax on customers’ phone bill, whose funds will serve to install the 911 emergency service, and instead announced the allocation of US$50 million to cover the first year’s cost.
Ruling PLD party deputy Elpido Baez made the announcement in a National Palace press conference, accompanied by colleagues Elías Serrulle and Ricardo Contreras.
On Twitter, the Presidency’s Press Office said the congressional committee members studying the bill to install the 911 system met today in the National Palace, with Presidency chief of staff Juan Montalvo.
