Community Service Revenue Bill Approved (May 04, 2012)
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has signed a bill that
provides a new revenue stream to help fund county community service
programs.
Fallin signed the Safari McDoulett Community Service Act on
Thursday. The bill is named after an Oklahoma County staffer who
died in a car accident earlier this year in Norman.
The bill authorizes counties to develop a system for district,
juvenile and municipal courts to levy a fee from $25 to $250 on
defendants ordered to perform community service. Oklahoma City Sen.
David Holt sponsored the bill and says it will help to fund
community service programs.
Holt says the bill was requested by Oklahoma County Commissioner
Brian Maughan as a way to help fund a program that allows convicted
criminals to do community service as part of their sentence.
