(This amendment provides $143,960 from the general fund in the second year to increase the compensation paid to substitute district court judges. Currently, substitute district court judges receive a payment of $200 per day when hearing a full docket of cases or $100 per day when hearing only a partial docket. This amendment would increase those rates of pay to $250 per day and $150 per day. Substitute district court judges typically serve when the existing district court judges are ill, on vacation, or have conflicts of interest.)
