On March 26, 2012, AWA members voted to approve this 2012 Resolution.  The Resolution supports House Bill 953 and Senate Bill 609, which aims to permanently stop implementation of earlier legislation mandating court consolidation at its current stage. As the Resolution states, the judges have been provided with a fiscal note of over $7 million to complete consolidation.  The AWA, as well as other local and specialty bars, have voted to publicly support the pending legislation.
