Legislation

        The diligent work of the Family Representation Commission in 2021 resulted in  the presentation of the Family Representation and Advocacy Act (SB 127), and the accompanying Constitutional Amendment (SJR 11) in the 2021 Legislative Session.  Both pieces of legislation were modeled after the creation of public defender department and public defender commission. The Act sought to create the Office of Family Representation and Advocacy in the Judiciary as well as an Oversight Commission. The Constitutional Amendment provided a concrete plan and time frame for complete independence of the Office in the Judiciary once passed by the voters. Both bills were introduced in the 2021 Legislature and a Fiscal Impact Report for SB 127 was completed.
