Capitol Update for July 18, 2015, Gary Cross

This week's capitol update from Gary Cross

Municipal Court Reform Legislation Signed into Law (SB 5)

The legislature took action this year to stop municipalities generating additional revenue by excessively ticketing and fining Missouri motorists.  The governor recently signed into law the bill that limits the amount of revenue municipalities can generate from traffic tickets to 20 percent, which is a decrease from the current limit of 30 percent. The bill further limits municipalities in St. Louis County, which has been plagued by excessive traffic violations, so that only 12.5 percent of their total revenue can be derived from traffic tickets.

The bill also creates additional protections for Missourians by capping the total fines and court costs for minor traffic violations at $300, and ending the process of courts issuing failure to appear charges against defendants for missing court dates on minor traffic violations. The bill also would prevent courts from ordering jail time for minor traffic offenses. In addition, the bill includes provisions to ensure accountability from municipalities by requiring they meet minimum standards - police services, balanced budget, insurance, etc. - or possibly be dissolved.
