Assessed court costs; electronic summons system. Requires, in any criminal or traffic case in which the Virginia State Police issued the summons, ticket, or citation, executed the warrant, or made the arrest for a violation of any statute, an additional assessment of $5 as part of the costs, which shall be remitted to the state treasury to be placed in a fund for the Virginia State Police solely to fund software, hardware, and associated equipment costs for the implementation and maintenance of an electronic summons system. Current law allows localities to assess such a sum. Read the Bill »
