Relating to associate judges and court reporters for certain family law cases and proceedings.


Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

This bill would modify the portion of the code related to the court reporter’s record. If passed, a hearing held by an associate judge must have a court reporter provided or the proceedings must be recorded with a good quality electronic audio recording device. A court reporter would be required to be provided when an associate judge presides over a jury trial, or a child custody and parental termination matters.  

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill does not have a measurable impact on our liberty principles, and we will remain neutral.
