March 21, 2019
Legislation sponsored by Sen. Ed McBroom to save the 95-A District Court judgeship in Menominee County from elimination was signed into law on Thursday. Senate Bill 87, now Public Act 1 of 2019, reverses a 2012 law that eliminated the position, which was based on a State Court Administrator's Office (SCAO) Judicial Resources Recommendation (JRR) calling for the removal based on data and statistical analysis from 2008-2010. The position was to be eliminated on March 31. "I appreciate the support of my colleagues from both sides of the political divide for recognizing the importance of keeping the 95-A judge and for their quick action in getting the bill approved, especially Representative Beau LaFave who sponsored an identical bill in the House, and Representatives Greg Markkanen and Sara Cambensy," said McBroom, R-Vulcan.
