The recent FACS meeting in Tallahassee was an opportunity to establish important relationships with our legislators. Many bills were being considered this session, which could have helped or hindered our organization. SB 7066 was one of the most serious.
The last action on the bill was on 03/09/2012 It died on calendar. If this bill had passed the courts would have taken the cream off the top of the fees collected and the rest would have to be divided among those other agencies that use court assigned fees for their funding, including the Crime Stopper Trust Fund. Fortunately there were many opponents to this bill including the Clerk of The Courts organization.
