An Act To Increase Mileage Reimbursement and Compensation for Jurors
Sec. 1. 14 MRSA §1215, as amended by PL 1991, c. 528, Pt. E, §13 and affected by c. 528, Pt. RRR and amended by c. 591, Pt. E, §13, is further amended to read:
§ 1215. Mileage and compensation of jurors
A juror is entitled to paid mileage at the rate of 15¢ per mile specified for state employees in Title 5, section 8 for travel expenses from the juror's residence to the place of holding court and return and to compensation at the rate of $10 $20 for each day of required attendance at sessions of the court.
This bill increases the mileage reimbursement for citizens who serve as jurors from 15¢ per mile to 44¢ per mile. It restores the per diem compensation to $20 per day, the rate paid to jurors until 1991.
