Every interim the Texas Judicial Council develops a series of proposals for changes to statute that will improve the administration of justice. In 2009, as I recall, about half of the bills we proposed were enacted, which is a pretty good batting average considering how many bills always die, and of course considering what happened on the House floor last session. This interim we have resurrected those proposals that did not pass and begun to add more. You can view the current list of ideas on a new page on the Judicial Council's website. Legislators and staff are encouraged to let me know if they are interested in authoring any of these ideas.
