SB 402 (Rodrigues) allows for civil or criminal case legal notices to be published through a statewide website established and maintained by the Supreme Court in lieu of publication in a newspaper. A county may publish a legal notice in a newspaper of general circulation within that county, but the newspaper may not charge a fee in excess of the website publication fee established by the Supreme Court. The bill directs all revenue in excess of the websites operating costs go toward collecting and publishing data on restitution, fines and fees owed by nonviolent felons and directs the established website to publish that information.
