Item 3-6.05 #1h

Adjustments and Modifications to Fees
Deposit of Fines and Fees

Page 492, line 16, after "treasury." insert:
"The State Comptroller shall promptly and without delay transmit any and all non-withheld local fees and fines to the locality's treasury not later than sixty (60) days after these fines and fees were collected by the District Courts.  This monetary transmittal shall include an accounting of all local fees and fines collected by the District Courts and the dates on which these local fees and fines were collected by the District Court."

(This amendment modifies language included in Chapter 3 pursuant to the distribution of local fines and fees from those localities where more than 50 percent of their collections were written to local ordinances. The new language is intended to clarify the timeliness of the reimbursement to the localities of their portion of the fines and fees.)
