AN ACT TO REMOVE THE RESTRICTIONS ON THE NUMBER OF EMERGENCY JUDGES THAT MAY BE LISTED ON AN EMERGENCY JUDGE ACTIVE LIST AND TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS.
Amends GS 7A-52 by removing the cap on the number of emergency superior court special superior court judges and emergency district court judges, instead specifying that there there is no limit to the number of emergency judges on either the active or inactive list. Makes conforming changes.
Appropriates $100,000 for each year of the 2021-23 biennium from the General Fund to the Administrative Office of the Courts to pay for the use of emergency judges that will likely increase as a result of the changes made by this act. Effective July 1, 2021.
