2001 Legislative SummaryWe are pleased to present this Summary of Selected 2001 Legislation of Interest to the Courts and hope it will be useful to implement bills that impact your court. During the 2001 Legislative session, the Legislature and Governor enacted nearly 65 bills that affect the courts and are of general interest to the legal community.
Brief descriptions of these measures follow, arranged by bill subjects. Designators indicate whether the measure is of primary interest to judges and/or court managers in superior (S), juvenile (J), district (D), municipal (M) or appellate courts (A). Following each bill summary is a brief description in italics of implementation steps to be undertaken by the Office of the Administrator for the Courts (OAC), committees, associations or courts.
The effective date of legislation is July 22, 2001, unless otherwise noted at the end of the bill summary. Any bills which had partial vetoes from the Governor are indicated next to the bill number.
A list of OAC "bill trackers" is provided. Please contact the tracker directly if you have questions about a particular bill, or you may call Janet McLane at (360) 705-5305 or Victor Moore at (360) 357-2406 for general legislative inquiries.
Mary Campbell McQueen, Washington State Court Administrator
