The legislative impasse continues with respect to the Court Reporter Appropriation shortfall. Governor Rauner says an agreement is imminent, but Senate President Cullerton says major issues are still to be decided.
In the meantime, official court reporters should wait to hear the “official word’ from his or her Chief Judge as to the plan for their individual circuit as the Chief Judge has the authority to decide.
The next Conference of Chief Judges meeting is scheduled 3/20/15. Confirmed information updates will be posted in the member only section of www.ilcra.org. Stay tuned.
