HB1513 by Lewis (Relating to increases in the records archive fees and the records management and preservation fees charged by district and county clerks.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Government Code to authorize the commissioners court of a county to increase a district court records archive fee from not more than $5 to not more than $10. The fee would be required to be deposited into a district court records technology fund in the county’s general fund and could only be expended for the preservation and restoration of the district court records archive.
The bill would amend the Local Government Code to authorize a county clerk to increase the Records Management and Preservation Fee and Records Archive Fee from not more than $5 to not more than $10.
According to the Office of Court Administration, the revenue generated by these fees is retained locally; therefore, no fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
