completing the state backbone to specified
standards, the cost of local subsystems, and
the potential advantages of using a request
for proposal approach to solicit private sector
participation in the project. The study shall
include a financial analysis of whether the
estimated revenue from increasing the 911
fee by up to 30 cents will cover the estimated
debt service of revenue bonds issued to
finance the cost of completing the statewide
radio system and a portion of the cost up to
50 percent for local subsystems. The study
shall also review the project organizational
