Civil Motor Vehicle Infraction Hearing Fee

SECTION 57.   Paragraph (4) of subsection (A) of section 3 of chapter 90C of the General Laws is hereby amended by striking out the first paragraph, as amended by section 73 of chapter 27 of the acts of 2009, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-

A violator may contest responsibility for the infraction by making a signed request for a noncriminal hearing on the back of the citation and mailing such citation, together with a $25 court filing fee, to the registrar at the address indicated on the citation within 20 days of the citation. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the registrar, in cooperation with the state comptroller, upon receipt of the $25 court filing fee, shall immediately cause the court filing fee to be transferred to the trial court department to be held as retained revenue.


Veto Explanation:
I am vetoing this section because it imposes administrative costs on the Registry of Motor Vehicle and the Merit Rating Board without any appropriation to pay them.
