Date Introduced 01/04/2019

The bill requires the state court administrator to administer a court
reminder program (program) to remind criminal defendants to appear at
their scheduled hearings in district courts, county courts, and municipal
courts that use the judicial department's case management system. The
objective of the program is to significantly reduce the number of

defendants who are committed to the custody of a county jail solely as a
result of their failure to appear in court. The judicial department is
required to include information about the program in its annual report to
the general assembly.
