Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation proposes to divide juvenile courts into judicial circuits the same as superior court.  Each judge of the juvenile court shall be elected on a nonpartisan basis and serve for a term of four years.  The bill also requires that the compensation  of the juvenile court judge be no less than $115,000, however the state grant remains at $100,000 per juvenile court judge.
