Amends GS 7A-343.1, as the title indicates, making a substantial reduction in the distribution of hard copies of the appellate division reports at state expense, decreasing the number of recipients and decreasing the number of copies to the remaining recipients.
Directs the Administrative Officer of the Courts to develop a process for making copies of the appellate division reports available for purchase at a purchase price that equals the actual cost to the state for publication and shipping of the report.
Additionally requires that the appellate division reports be available electronically through publication in a downloadable format on a publicly available website, at no cost to the recipient.
