(This amendment provides about $4.1 million the first year and $8.2 million the second year from the general fund to the Supreme Court for the Courts Technology Fund. The nongeneral fund revenue is derived from additional filing fees on certain types of cases coming before the various courts operated by the Commonwealth. These additional filings include a $5 increase in fees for civil filings in general district and circuit courts for the period between July 1 and December 31, 2006, and an additional $5 increase beginning January 1, 2007; a $25 increase in the filing fee for cases brought before the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court; and a $14 increase for a law license certificate. The purpose of the Courts Technology Fund is to provide a source of funding for modernizing the court system's technology infrastructure and developing service delivery enhancements for attorneys, prosecutors, and the public.)
