(This amendment provides $2.1 million each year from the general fund pursuant to the provisions of House Bill 125, which increases the fee that a special justice or judge receives for presiding over emergency custody and voluntary and involuntary civil admissions from $86.25 to $120 for each commitment hearing and from $43.25 to $70 for each certification hearing. These fees are paid out of the Involuntary Mental Commitment Fund, which is supported through general fund appropriation. Fee amounts are incurred by the General, Juvenile and Domestic Relations, and Combined District Courts, and so funding allocations will be split accordingly upon final enrollment.)
