The Judicial Council of Georgia has voted to move forward with proposed legislation to change the structure of the Board of Court Reporting and the statutory law affecting court reporters in Georgia. The GCRA board recently met with Judge Carla McMillian, who is the head of the Court Reporting Matters Committee, as well as Tyler Mashburn, representing the Administrative Office of the Courts, to explain our concerns.
What we are facing will be a two-year process, and the proposed changes will affect every court reporter in the state of Georgia, whether official or freelance, by letting each judge in state and superior courts decide whether to use digital recording in their courtrooms, as one proposed change. GCRA will be working with Brad Carver, our lobbyist, to have a voice in this process, and we will keep you updated.
