Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 1220 - Currently, a juror shall receive seven cents per mile to and from his or her place of residence and the courthouse. This act modifies the mileage rate of jurors to the mileage rate of state employees, which is currently provided at sixty-five and half cents. Current law also provides that grand or petit jurors in certain counties, including in Clay and Greene, shall not receive compensation for the first two days of service, but shall receive fifty dollars with seven cents per mile for the third and any subsequent days that the juror actually serves. This act provides that the governing body of the county or the City of St. Louis may adopt a system of juror compensation that provides grand or petit jurors to receive no compensation on the first two days of actual service, but receive fifty dollars with the state employee mileage rate for the third and any subsequent days of actual service.

This act is identical to provisions in SCS/SB 897 (2024) and in SCS/HCS/HB 2064 & HCS#2/HB 1886 (2024), is substantially similar to provisions in SCS/HCS/HB 2700 (2024), and is similar to HB 1457 (2024).
