Introduced by Rep. Graham Filler (R) on March 6, 2019 To extend for another 10 years the termination date on a requirement that court clerks must collect an electronic filing system fee in addition to a fee authorized or required by law for filing a civil action. Under current law clerks began collecting the fee in 2016 and are supposed to stop collecting it in 2021. The fees were intended to pay for setting up an electronic court filing system (rather than the previous paper-based system), and end when that has been done. Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on March 6, 2019
Reported in the House on March 19, 2019 Without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
