(This amendment provides $481,000 the first year from the general fund to implement the provisions of Senate Bill 173, concerning petitions for child custody or visitation. The fiscal impact is based on the November 1, 2014, report of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court, pursuant to Item 37.K. of the 2014 Appropriation Act, Chapter 2, which required the Executive Secretary to review the impact on the court system, fiscal and operational, of allowing a single petition in juvenile and domestic relations court cases involving two or more children if such children have the same parents or legal guardians. This amendment is contingent upon final passage of Senate Bill 173 by the 2016 General Assembly.)
