HB 576 amends Title 15 of the OCGA to revise the order of priority for the distribution of fines, bond forfeitures, surcharges, additional fees, and costs in cases of partial payments into the court. County law libraries have been moved from eighth to tenth in the priority list. The bill further provides that any rules or regulations promulgated in regard to priority of distribution of such amounts from courts other than superior or state court must follow the priority set forth in OCGA 15-6-95.
