Supreme Court Public Financing Pilot Project (HB 4130) Passes Out of House Judiciary!

Our public financing Pilot Project HB 4130, as introduced by the Governor, passed House Judiciary today! It will now go to Finance Committee, and we need your help. The Judiciary Subcommittee that considered the bill removed one of the funding sources - a minimal fee for people who use the court system. We fear that if this funding source is not restored, or another identified, there may not be enough funds available to make the pilot successful. Obviously, we do not want the project set up in a way that will cause it to fail.

Please help us by contacting members of the House Finance Committee (link below) and ask them to be sure that the Supreme Court Pilot Project (HB 4130) is fully funded. Adequate funding is essential for a valid pilot that will give us a true picture of how public financing for the Supreme Court might work in our state. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
