AMENDMENT 710 RATIFIED
Costs and Charges of Courts in Lamar County.
In addition to any court costs or fees now or hereafter authorized, and notwithstanding any other provisions of the Constitution, including, without limitation, Sections 96, 104, and 105, there shall be an additional fee of one hundred dollars ($100) in misdemeanor drug cases and an additional fee of five hundred dollars ($500) in felony drug convictions assessed and taxed as costs on criminal cases filed in circuit court, district court, or any municipal court in Lamar County. The fees may not be waived by any court unless all other fees, assessments, costs, fines, and charges associated with the cases are waived. The additional fees, when collected by the clerks or other collection officers of the courts, shall be paid into the General Fund of Lamar County to be used by the county commission for the operation and maintenance of the canine unit in the office of the sheriff. This amendment shall be self-executing and shall require no enabling legislation.
