Joint Budget Committee. Current law allows the clerk of the
court to retain 5 percent of the drug offender surcharge and the rural
alcohol and substance abuse surcharge for the administration of the
disbursement of the surcharges. The retained 5 percent of both surcharges
are kept on a balance sheet account and expenses are identified to offset
this revenue. To simplify the process by which this 5 percent of surcharge

revenue is retained, section 2 of the bill requires that the revenue be
deposited directly into the judicial stabilization cash fund instead.
Under current law, the courts' collections investigator program is
funded by the fines collection cash fund and the judicial collection
enhancement fund. To eliminate the inefficiency of administering 2 cash
funds, section 1 eliminates the fines collection cash fund and requires all
fines previously required to be deposited in that fund to instead be
deposited in the judicial collection enhancement cash fund.
