H. 470 Passes the House

In an overwhelming voice vote, the judicial restructuring bill took its first steps towards becoming law. As often happens, yesterday's 104-40 roll call vote was today followed only be a voice vote with little opposition. More amendments were offered today and all were defeated except one: the court administrator will, in the future, distribute the rotation schedule of trial judges electronically to all attorneys. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hear from witnesses tomorrow morning and not on Friday as previously scheduled.
There is a very long way to go before work on this bill is done.
Thanks for reading.
