Senate Roll Call 602 on
2014 House Bill 5785: Expand permissible criminal court cost levies

Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate on October 2, 2014.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To expand the costs that can be imposed on a individual convicted in a criminal case. The bill would authorize imposing assessments covering a share of court employee salaries and benefits, of "goods and services” used in operating the court, and of court building “operation and maintenance" costs. In addition, the bill would establish that a court has no duty to provide a “calculation of the costs involved in a particular case.” The bill reverses a state Supreme Court case that limited charges to those specifically allowed in a particular statute; its provisions would expire in 36 months, presumably to allow the legislature to rationalize these impositions for courts across the state.
