Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
The Clerks of Courts Act is amended by adding
Section 27.3e as follows:
(705 ILCS 105/27.3e new)
Electronic citation fee.
As used in this
Section, "electronic citation" means the process of
transmitting traffic, misdemeanor, municipal ordinance,
conservation, or other citations and law enforcement data via
electronic means to a circuit court clerk.
To defray the expense of establishing and maintaining
electronic citations, each Circuit Court Clerk shall charge and
collect an electronic citation fee of $5. Such fee shall be
paid by the defendant in any traffic, misdemeanor, municipal
ordinance, or conservation case upon a judgment of guilty or
grant of supervision.
This fee shall be in addition to all
other fees and charges and assessable as costs and shall not be
subject to disbursement under Section 27.5 or 27.6 of this Act.
60% of the fee shall be deposited into the Circuit Court Clerk
Electronic Citation Fund and 40% of the fee shall be disbursed
to the arresting agency to defray expenses related to the
establishment and maintenance of electronic citations. The
