(This amendment deletes language included in the introduced budget which established a process for the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court to waive the maximum fee allowed for court appointed counsel. House Bill 2361 establishes a specific process to address the issue of a waiver of the maximum fees. This amendment provides funding of $7.5 million for this initiative based on the estimated impact of House Bill 2361.)
