  1. really?

    “The state’s attorney general can seek to recover any non-paid fees by way of a civil action. The bill does not create a new crime for offenders who do not pay the fees. ”

    Really? Don’t they put people in jail for failure to pay a fee?

  2. Sheesh

    Good thing it’s just regulation, and nothing more. Let’s see, you mandate me to partake in a regulatory process, then you mandate I pay for said process. Not because of any benefit requested or yielded by me from said regulation, but 100% based on past activities for which I’ve fully repaid society. Nope, nothing wrong there, right Justice Roberts? They’d be smarter to call it a tax, then at least SCOTUS could more easily turn a blind eye.

    And if I cannot afford it, I guess I get tossed into debtors’ prison? I’m pretty sure our Founding Fathers said ix-nay on that.

    Man this gets soooo old.

    Well, after all, it is akin to a Price Club membership. So it’s only reasonable that they charge for it. [sarcasm]

    Let’s see…put people on a registry that makes finding work extremely difficult, then charge them a fee for being on that registry and incarcerate them when they can’t pay the fee…anyone besides me see an agenda here?
