The filing fees and court 10 13 costs in cases of parking meter and overtime parking violations 10 14 which are denied are as stated in section 602.8106, subsection 10 15 1. The court costs in scheduled violation cases where a court 10 16 appearance is not required are as stated in section 602.8106, 10 17 subsection 1. The court costs in scheduled violation cases 10 18 where a court appearance is required are as stated in section 10 19 602.8106, subsection 1.

The court shall 10 33 forward an abstract of the uniform citation and complaint in 10 34 accordance with section 321.491 when applicable. 11 1 Sec. 28. Section 907.9, subsection 4, Code 2009, is amended 11 2 to read as follows: 11 3 4. At the expiration of the period of probation if the 11 4 fees imposed under section 905.14 and court debt collected 11 5 pursuant to section 602.8107 have been paid, the court shall 11 6 order the discharge of the person from probation. If portions 11 7 of the court debt remain unpaid, the person shall establish a 11 8 payment plan with the clerk of the district court or the county 11 9 attorney prior to the discharge. The court shall forward to 11 10 the governor a recommendation for or against restoration of 11 11 citizenship rights to that person upon discharge. A person 11 12 who has been discharged from probation shall no longer be held 11 13 to answer for the person's offense, except for any unpaid 11 14 court debt as defined in section 602.8107. Upon discharge 11 15 from probation, if judgment has been deferred under section 11 16 907.3, the court's criminal record with reference to the 11 17 deferred judgment shall be expunged sealed, except as provided 11 18 in section 907.4, unless the defendant has unpaid court debt 11 19 as defined in section 602.8107 in the case that includes the 11 20 deferred judgment. The record shall remain unsealed until such 11 21 time the court debt is paid in full. The record maintained 11 22 by the state court administrator as required by section 11 23 907.4 shall not be expunged. The court's record shall not be 11 24 expunged in any other circumstances. 11 25 EXPLANATION 11 26 This bill relates to the administration of the judicial 11 27 branch, and makes an appropriation. The bill is separated into 11 28 three divisions to enhance the readability of the bill. 11 29 DIVISION I. The division amends Code sections 232.41 11 30 (delinquency proceedings), 232.94 (child in need of assistance 11 31 proceedings), and 232.115 (termination of parental rights 11 32 proceedings), by striking a similar provision in each section 11 33 requiring the proceedings to be recorded by a reporter in 11 34 writing or shorthand. 11 35 The division repeals Code section 602.6603, permitting 12 1 a district judge or district associate judge to appoint a 12 2 certified court reporter, and permitting the appointment of an 12 3 uncertified court reporter under certain circumstances. 12 4 The division also strikes a reference to Code section 12 5 602.6603 in Code section 602.3201. The bill specifies that the 12 6 supreme court, by court rule, may designate when an uncertified 12 7 court reporter may engage in the profession of shorthand 12 8 reporting. Currently, Code section 602.6603 governs when an 12 9 uncertified court reporter may engage in the profession of 12 10 shorthand reporting. 12 11 The division also repeals Code sections 624.9, 624.10, and 12 12 624.11, requiring hearings and trials to be reported in writing 12 13 or shorthand. 12 14 DIVISION II. The division prohibits any donation to an 12 15 agency, organization, or political subdivision of the state as 12 16 part of any deferred prosecution, dismissal, sentence, or other 12 17 penalty. The bill eliminates a provision allowing a criminal 12 18 defendant to make a donation in lieu of performing community 12 19 service. The bill also eliminates provisions allowing a 12 20 contribution by a criminal defendant to a local anticrime 12 21 organization as part of the offender's restitution plan. 12 22 DIVISION III. The division requires the department of 12 23 administrative services and any other state agency that 12 24 maintains a separate accounting system and elects to establish 12 25 a debt collection setoff procedure, to remit to the state court 12 26 administrator, 10 percent of the amounts set off from the 12 27 collection of delinquent court debt for use by the judicial 12 28 branch to defray the costs of collecting unpaid court debt. 12 29 The division provides that the court may enter temporary 12 30 custody and visitation orders prior to a hearing to determine 12 31 whether domestic abuse has occurred under Code chapter 236. In 12 32 awarding temporary custody and visitation under the bill, the 12 33 court shall give primary consideration to the safety of the 12 34 alleged victim and the children. 12 35 The division requires each party to an action which involves 13 1 the custody of a child or visitation to participate in a 13 2 court=approved course to educate and sensitize the parties to 13 3 the needs of any child involved in the custody or visitation 13 4 action. Current law requires the court to order the parties 13 5 to attend such a course. 13 6 The division requires the supreme court to prescribe 13 7 rules regarding the retention of all judicial branch records, 13 8 including the creation, storage, duplication, reproduction, 13 9 disposition, and destruction of such records, and such rules 13 10 shall also include the availability of the records to the 13 11 public and the security of such records. The rules prescribed 13 12 pursuant to the division shall prevail over any other laws, 13 13 rules, or court rules except for the rules prescribed under 13 14 Code section 602.1614 relating to electronic records. 13 15 The division requires the supreme court to appoint the 13 16 administrator of the board of examiners of shorthand reporters. 13 17 Current law provides that the state court administrator or 13 18 a designee of the state court administrator shall act as 13 19 administer of the board. 13 20 The division specifies that the fees assessed for shorthand 13 21 certification examinations are appropriated to the judicial 13 22 branch and shall be used to offset the expenses of the board, 13 23 including the costs of administering examinations. 13 24 The division increases the fee for filing and docketing a 13 25 complaint or information for state parking violations from $8 13 26 to $35. The division eliminates the court costs assessed for 13 27 contested local parking meter and overtime parking violations. 13 28 The division transfers the authority to set fees for 13 29 examination and admission to practice law in Iowa from the 13 30 board of law examiners to the supreme court. The division also 13 31 specifies that the fees collected for examination and admission 13 32 are appropriated to the judicial branch and shall be used to 13 33 offset the costs of administering the examination and admission 13 34 process to practice law. Current law requires the examination 13 35 and admission fees to be deposited into the general fund of the 14 1 state. 14 2 The division separates the authority of the supreme court 14 3 to establish the mileage reimbursement rate for jurors from 14 4 the authority of the supreme court to establish the mileage 14 5 reimbursement rate for witnesses, judicial officers, and court 14 6 employees. Currently, the mileage reimbursement rate for 14 7 jurors, witnesses, judicial officers, and court employees is 14 8 established under the authority of the supreme court pursuant 14 9 to one provision in Code section 602.1509. 14 10 The division permits the court to seal or partially seal a 14 11 juror questionnaire in order to protect the safety and privacy 14 12 of a juror or a family member of a juror who has been the victim 14 13 of sexual or domestic abuse. 14 14 The division sets the fee for filing a tribal judgment with 14 15 the clerk of the district court at $100. The distribution 14 16 of court fees collected by the clerk of the district court 14 17 is governed by Code section 602.8108. Current law does not 14 18 establish a filing fee for a tribal judgment. 14 19 The division specifies that a person who has been discharged 14 20 from probation shall no longer be held accountable for the 14 21 person's offense, except if the person has unpaid court debt as 14 22 defined in Code section 602.8107. 14 23 The division also specifies that a person who receives 14 24 a deferred judgment shall, upon successful completion of 14 25 probation, have any reference to the record containing the 14 26 deferred judgment sealed, except if the person has unpaid 14 27 court debt in the case that includes the deferred judgment. 14 28 The division further specifies that the record containing the 14 29 deferred judgment shall not be sealed until the court debt is 14 30 paid in full.
