Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the need for additional magistrates throughout the state.

    Whereas, The Legislature finds that there has not been a study regarding the need for additional magistrates based on the caseload of each magistrate throughout the state in the same way as there has been for circuit court judges; and

    Whereas, The Legislature finds that it is in the best interest of the State for magistrates to be located appropriately throughout the State in order to afford the most effective and efficient resolution of cases in magistrate court; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the need for additional magistrates throughout the state; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the specific counties that may be in greater need of an additional magistrate; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
