Establishment of Uniform Mileage Reimbursement Rate for Expenses Paid from the Court Fund

ORDER

By reason of the inconsistency in mileage reimbursement rates between the State Travel Reimbursement Act, Title 74 O.S. § 500.4 and the rate of reimbursement for state employees, Title 74 O.S. § 85.45l, for expenses paid from the court fund, the Court directs that uniform rate should be established for the purpose of consistency to assist the accounting and budgeting process in the district courts.

Pursuant to this order all mileage which is reimbursed by the court fund, including, but not limited to jurors, interpreters and witnesses, shall be computed at the standard mileage rate prescribed by the State Travel Reimbursement Act, Title 74 O.S. § 500.4.

The 2018 mileage rate prescribed in the State Travel Reimbursement Act is 54.5 cents per mile.

DONE BY ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT IN CONFERENCE THIS 16th day of January, 2018.
