Current Bill Summary

HCS/SCS/SB 916 - This act removes the sunset clause from Section 488.445, RSMo. Section 488.445, RSMo, currently requires counties to pass ordinances to impose fees on the issue of marriage licenses and surcharges upon civil cases before January 1, 2001. Section 488.005, RSMo, currently prohibits the collection of surcharges which will be imposed on or after January 1, 1997. This act adds an exception for surcharges authorized by an ordinance, order, or resolution authorized by statute.

The act increases the fees that court reporters may charge for the preparation of transcripts. Beginning January 1, 2004, the allowable fee for a court reporter to charge for a transcript shall be increased or decreased annually, based on the Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption Expenditures. The act increases the fee in every contested case where a court reporter is appointed from $15 to $25.

This act contains provisions that are similar to SB 1152 and HB 1962 (2002).
