The law requires that all voice communications service providers collect a single, uniform 911 service fee and send the revenue to the N.C. 911 Board rather than local governments. The N.C. 911 Board distributes funds to PSAPs based on criteria in the law.

The N.C. 911 Board must submit a report to the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operation, Revenue Laws Study Commission and Joint Legislative Utility Review Commission in February of every odd-numbered year.
