The process includes reviewing legislative changes to determine if any revisions to the Statewide Payables Lists are needed.
(Published Jun 13, 2012)
The Minnesota Judicial Council is beginning the annual review of the Statewide Payables Lists. These lists set forth those offenses for which an individual can choose to pay the listed fine in lieu of making a court appearance.
The review process includes reviewing legislative changes to determine if any revisions to the list are needed, soliciting input from interested parties, and publishing the amended lists with an effective date of Jan. 1 of the following year.
The Minnesota Judicial Council is soliciting input regarding any proposed revisions to the Statewide Payables Lists. Stakeholders are asked to review the current lists and recommend revisions, corrections, deletions, or clarifications to the Judicial Council. If there are any offenses that are payable in a local jurisdiction that the Judicial Council should consider for inclusion on the statewide lists, they should be submitted as well.
Under the policy, all statutory petty misdemeanor offenses are payable. The fine amount for petty misdemeanors is the amount set annually by the Judicial Council, which is currently $50, unless another fine amount is specified on the payables list. Therefore, the addition of petty misdemeanors to the payables list will be considered only if the proposed fine is other than the amount set annually by Judicial Council.
All requests will be considered. After preliminary consideration by the Judicial Council, individuals submitting requests will receive notice of the proposed revisions and will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed revisions before the Judicial Council makes its final decision.
All requests for revisions are due by July 6, and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
