Dear Chief Justice Veasey:
This morning the Attorney
General reminded me of our failure to provide the Court with an
advance copy of H.B. 287. I very much regret the fact that I failed
to ensure this was done. I am aware of the Attorney Generalís policy
that she will provide the Court with advance notice of legislation
that affects the Court. We did not begin seriously drafting the
legislation until June. Somehow, with the crush of business at the
end of the legislative session, I neglected to ensure that this
important task was attended to. I am truly sorry for any
difficulties I may have caused the Court.
Though I assume Your Honor
already has a copy of the legislation, I have nonetheless enclosed a
copy for your convenience.
Please let me know if I can
be of further service to the Court in this matter.
Steven P. Wood
