Art. V glitch bill in the works

first_img Art. V glitch bill in the works A bill to fix remaining problems — including a ticklish dispute between chief circuit judges and court clerks — with the legislature’s taking over more funding of trial courts has cleared a key committee in the Florida Legislature.HB 1935, drafted in the House Judiciary Committee, cleared the Justice Appropriation Committee on April 15 and was sent to the House Justice Council.“The House bill has some language that addresses the implementation issues that have arisen between the courts and the clerks of court,” said State Courts Administrator Lisa Goodner. “They are creating language that allowed the chief judge, after consultation with the clerk, to determine the priority of services provided to the courts by the clerks.“There is also language that if for some reason a clerk feels it is not appropriate to continue a certain service, they cannot discontinue that service without the agreement of the chief judge or without a year’s notice to the court, so the court has an opportunity to go to the legislature to request funding.”That language is a result of judges’ saying they have little control over clerks when they perform their court-supporting functions and in some cases that was affecting operation of the courts.An amendment to the Rules of Judicial Administration was proposed last year to address that, but the Board of Governors in August refused to endorse it after some lawmakers advised it was a matter best left to the legislature. The committee ultimately did not send the rule amendment to the Supreme Court.Other parts of the bill, according to sponsor Rep. David Simmons, R-Alamonte Springs, address other problems that have come up, including determining indigency for people seeking public defenders or to waive filing and court fees.Other changes include giving clerks another year, until 2007, to remove Social Security numbers from public court records, repealing the Indigency Services Advisory Board, and allowing the payment of experts when they are appointed by the court.Rep. Jack Seiler, D-Pompano Beach, said he was working on an amendment to allow partial payment for private attorneys appointed as defense counsel so they won’t have to wait until the end of a long case before they receive any compensation. He said that would be offered at a later date.Rep. J.C. Planas, R-Miami, said he hoped the bill would be amended later to change the penalty for lying on an indigency application from a misdemeanor to a felony.“It’s one thing to have someone commit a crime, but then to use our money and our taxpayers’ money when they have adequate means. . . that’s pretty despicable,” he said. Measure also deals with dispute between clerks and chief judges Art. V glitch bill in the works May 1, 2005 Regular Newslast_img read more

The provinces of Antique, Aklan, Capiz, Guimaras, and Negros Occidental have been under GCQ since May 1 and this was supposed to be further eased by May 16. * Manufacturing services are fully allowed to operate.
