Circuit court clerks; technology fee.  Replaces the $5 Technology Trust Fund Fee with a $4 Local Technology Trust Fund Fee and a $1 State Technology Trust Fund Fee. The $4 local fee will be deposited into the circuit court clerk's nonreverting fund to be used for the operational expenses associated with providing secure remote access to land records. The $1 state fee is paid to a state trust fund and may be allocated by the State Compensation Board to those clerks' offices whose deposits from the local fund are not sufficient for modernizing access to records. Currently, $4 of the $5 fee is paid into a trust fund and allocated by the Compensation Board to circuit court clerks' offices for such purposes and the remaining $1 is allocated to studies of automation and to clerks' offices whose share of the $4 fee is not sufficient to implement such modernizations.
