House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Updating the Sheriff's Fee Act
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to modernize the fees in the Sheriff’s Fee Act. The Sheriff’s Fee Act of 1984 consolidated various fees that the Office of Sheriff had been collecting for actions in civil law requiring action by that Office. The Act was last revised in 1995 to increase the amount of money charged for these services and has not been upgraded since then.

This legislation will bring the fees collected to a modern day level and incorporate several fees that are currently in Title 18 (Crimes Code) and Act 2 (Sheriff and Deputy Sheriffs Education and Training Act). The Sheriff’s fees will be incorporated in a new section of Title 42 which will make access to these figures easier to find and understand.

A list of the proposed increases are attached for your review.
