Legislative Service Commission
Sub. H.B. 363
126th General Assembly
(S. Judiciary Civil Justice)
The committee amendments do the following:
Modify the payment schedule through calendar year 2011 for the board of county commissioners and the board of trustees of a law library association with regard to the costs of the space in the county courthouse or other building provided for the use of the law library, the utilities for that space, and furniture and fixtures for the law library, delays until calendar year 2012 (from 2011 as under existing law) when the board of county commissioners' obligation for such costs ends, and provides that the board of county commissioners is still obligated to provide space in the county courthouse or any other building in the county seat if the board of trustees modifies the space used by the law library in a manner that results in no change in that space or in a reduction in that space and that results in no additional costs to the board of county commissioners for fixtures or furniture for the law library.
Extends the deadline for the report from the Task Force on Law Library Associations for one year to October 31, 2007.
Provides that no board of trustees of a law library association or board of county commissioners is required to repay any funds identified in a finding for recovery made by the Auditor of State as the result of such a board of trustees electing to pay, in violation of the law, the entire amount of compensation of the law librarian and any assistant librarians of its law library, that neither the prosecuting attorney nor the Attorney General is under any obligation to act, and must not act, upon the Auditor of State's finding for recovery, and that the finding for recovery is considered resolved for the purposes of R.C. 9.24.
