(This amendment adjusts the procedures for the deposit of local fines and fees into the State Treasury. A companion amendment to Section 3-6.05 of this act removes local fees from the calculation of the amounts to be returned to the Literary Fund and provides that one-half of the amount by which local fines and forfeitures exceed 65 percent of total collections be returned to the Literary Fund. This amendment provides that only the state collections are to be deposited into the State Treasury. The current language requires that all local collections be deposited into the State Treasury, which in turn requires that checks for the local amounts not transferred to the Literary Fund be sent back to the localities. The intent of this amendment is to eliminate that administrative expense.)
