Current Bill Summary

SB 1012 - This act provides that any single noncharter county judicial circuit, rather than just the Thirty-First Judicial Circuit, shall collect a surcharge of up to ten dollars in all cases to be deposited in an account known as the "Justice Center Fund." In addition to costs associated with the construction, maintenance, and operation of a judicial facility, the act states that the funds from the surcharge may be used for the planning, including architectural and engineering plans, of a judicial facility or justice center.

The county or municipality shall maintain records identifying all funds received and expenditures made from the fund.

This act is identical to provisions in SS/SCS/SB 663 (2016) and substantially similar to provisions in HCS/SB 937 (2016).
