Sources of Revenue
Legislation creates:Neither Program nor Fund
Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
| This Bill would permit the assessment of new fees to support the teen court program. Each county that operates or wishes to operate a teen court program would be permitted to adopt the fee.
The fees assessed against defendants are as follows:
1. $5.00 for each conviction of the motor vehicle code.
2. $5.00 for each conviction of a felony or misdemeanor.
A 5% retainage would be kept by the circuit clerk
It is not possible to provide a reasonable accurate estimate of revenue which may be provided for two reasons: (1) the number of counties which may "wish" to operate a teen program is not known; and(2) we are not in possession of conviction statistics from which such calcultaions may be made. We are attaching (by e-mail) 2004 case filing statistics which may aid in determining the potential revenue impact.
|Effect of Proposal||Fiscal Year|
|1. Estmated Total Cost||0||0||0|
|Repairs and Alterations||0||0||0|
|2. Estimated Total Revenues||0||0||0|
3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
| 1. Bill does not direct the payment of funds collected to a special fund with the county commission.
2. Circuit clerks do not collect funds which result from cases filed in magistrate court.
