Ambulance fee defeated 53-46%
"Ambulance Fee Referendum Defeated

Despite a countywide push from Leggett and Bowers, voters shoot down fee for ambulance rides.
By Ryan McDermott

A contentious ballot measure to charge for ambulance rides in Montgomery County was voted down in Tuesday's general election. With all 248 precincts reporting the ambulance fee referendum was defeated 53.83 percent to 46.17 percent."

I'm happy it failed. Insurance companies are notorious for raising rates at the drop of a hat.

1. STILL not properly explained!
Glad I didn't have to vote for it! But sorry that Leggett can't find the necessary $14 mill.
