paid out of the county treasury where court was held, a fee shall be
charged to the person ordering a typewritten transcript by filing of
an order for transcript on appeal of a proceeding taken by an officer
of the court, which shall be certified to be a correct transcript of
the reporter's notes of the evidence
at the rate of three dollars per page for the original. The fee for a
copy, furnished on request, is forty cents per page, to be paid to
the officer of the court who prepared the transcript.
Section 2. The amendment to § 15-15-7 provided in section 1 of this Act is subject to the Supreme Court's adoption of a new rule establishing the page rate cost for both an original and copy of the transcript, effective January 1, 2023.
