Rule 2.958. Assessing fee for official reporter

The half-day fee to be charged under Government Code section 68086 for the services of an official reporter must be established by the trial court as follows: for a proceeding or portion of a proceeding in which a certified shorthand reporter is used, the fee is equal to the average salary and benefit costs of the reporter, plus indirect costs of up to 18 percent of salary and benefits. For purposes of this rule, the daily salary is determined by dividing the average annual salary of temporary and full-time reporters by 225 workdays.
