Bill Caption

Relating to the collection and refunding of certain fees and deposits by a county clerk or district clerk; increasing certain fees.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication is anticipated.

Local Government Impact

There would be a revenue increase to counties as a result of the provisions of the bill. The impact on counties would vary depending on a number of factors including, the number of individuals who post bail, if a county has a district clerk who serves as the clerk of certain cases handled by the county court at law, if a county commissioners court has authorized the collection of certain fees and the number of applicable cases in a county.

Bill Analysis

HB 2182 would make amendments to align statutory county court fees with district court fees and update fee amounts due to higher costs.
