A state lawmaker has announced his plans to generate more than $2-billion dollars for the state in a 10 year period.
Representative Mike Sturla of Lancaster unveiled House Bill 9-59 or the "State Police Municipal Patrol Services Act" on Tuesday.
He says it would implement a fee to municipalities who rely on state police coverage. The plan is to cover the cost of local police coverage to municipalities that don't currently pay for it and receive free coverage through state police.
Representative Sturla says funds would be directed to the general fund for state police operations.
