Explanation

The bill authorizes both Lori Calvert and Kenneth J. Krayeske to present their claims against the state, after the time limitations set in statute, to the Claims Commissioner. The associated fiscal impact depends on the adjudication of the claim.

The bill also makes various changes to court procedures which do not result in a fiscal impact. Among the changes, it allows judicial marshals to serve a copy of a capias order under specified circumstances. Current law allows judicial marshals to only serve the original order. In addition, the bill specifies that the fee for civil protection order be waived. Legislation for civil protection orders became in effect on January 1, 2015 and it has been the current practice of the Judicial Department to not charge the fee for a request for a civil protection order, as is the case under current law for civil restraining orders.

Senate “A” authorizes the two individuals to file claims against the state with the claims commissioner and makes other clarifying changes that do not result in a fiscal impact.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
