Publication: Fox 26/Fresno

A newly announced bill may soon pay low to moderate-income jurors in San Francisco a little more for doing their civic duty.

According to Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), AB 1452 aims to increase the daily pay for jury duty service from $15 to $100. Ting says the new bill aims to provide more socioeconomic and racial diversity among jurors.
