Current Bill Summary

SB 17 - Current law states that in order for a municipality to provide for automation of its municipal court the municipality must impose a surcharge in an amount payable in the manner provided by Section 476.053. This act changes the reference from Section 476.053, which no longer exists, to Section 488.027.

Currently, a committee consisting of associate circuit judges establishes and maintains a schedule of fines to be paid for the violation of certain sections listed in statute. This act repeals from this list a violation of Section 210.104, which was repealed in 2006 by Senate Bill 872.

The act is substantially similar to the introduced version of SB 615 (2014).
