Legislature Passes Legal Financial Obligation Bill

The Senate Ways and Means has passed HB 1783, Legal Financial Obligations – now it goes to the Rules Committee and then the Senate floor for consideration. NOTE: as of March 8 the Senate had passed the bill and it will go to the governor for signature.

– Current interest paid by those convicted on is 12% compounding.  Non payment may result in re-incarceration. This will be abolished.

  1. Both House and Senate have passed Bill 1783 which reforms Legal Financial Obligations. Major changes will allow convicted folks to better manage the burden of a brutal and costly set of fines and court costs.

    Thanks for all who advocated for this bill.
