Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 834 - Under current law, there is a special fund in each county treasury for certain funds coming into the possession of sheriffs that is to be used for the sheriff's office. Land sale proceeds and regular budget allocations are not to be directed into the fund. The fund may not exceed $50,000, and any proceeds in excess of such amount go into the general revenue in the county treasury.

This act specifies that charges received by sheriffs for executing service of process or other court orders must be placed in the special fund, subject to the $50,000 cap on the fund.

This act is identical to a provision of CCS/HCS/SB 628 (2012).
