7th Principle

State Court Trust Funds are the appropriate depositories for court filing fee revenue.

The State Courts System Operating Trust Fund is established in section 25.3844, Florida Statutes, “…for use as a depository of fees and related revenue for the purpose of supporting the program operations of the judicial branch and for such other purposes as may be appropriate….”

The Legislature could also establish a new trust fund to be used as a depository solely for filing fee revenue.
