    "Our county could use a few upgrades to improve the facilities of our courts. I heard there was a new fund added by the 87th Texas Legislature that is effective this year. What is it?"

    What is the purpose of the court facility fee fund?

    The court facility fee fund was added by SB 41 in the 87th Regular Legislative Session under Local Government Code §135.152. This fund can be used for the construction, renovation, or improvement of facilities that house the courts or pay the principal of, interest on, and costs of issuance of bonds issued for the construction, renovation, or improvement of the facilities. For more information on the source for this fund and many others, see our updated publication Special & Dedicated Funds.
