    Montgomery County's controversial ambulance fee may have signs of life.

    County Executive Ike Leggett wants to reinstate the fee, which could cost $300 to $800. Patients with health insurance would be covered. Those without would have to pay it unless they fell below a certain income level.

    The fee could bring in as much as $17 million per year, Leggett estimated.
