Other items on the meeting agenda included:
Restriction on State-Funded Travel to States with Discriminatory Laws: The council approved a policy to voluntarily comply with Government Code section 11139.8. The new statute prohibits state-funded or state-sponsored travel to states that have implemented discriminatory laws after June 26, 2015. The policy conforms the judicial branch to the practice in place for the executive and legislative branches in California.
Court Forms for Proposition 64: The council approved four optional forms to enable petitioner/applicants to file for resentencing, dismissal, and record sealing under the “Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act.”
Court Technology Needs: The council approved one-time allocations for the Superior Court of Humboldt County and the Superior Court of Madera County to transition from the California Court Technology Center (CCTC) to their own independent information technology infrastructures. In addition, both courts will be required to perform year-end reviews of their finances to identify one-time funding that could be used to help offset migration costs.
