California: Assembly Judiciary Committee wants a working group to look at how to get more information out to voters about judicial elections, posting judicial decisions online

An effort to improve voter education when it comes to judicial elections in California has cleared the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

AB 1463 as amended creates a working group, chosen by the Judicial Council, to consider what information would be useful to voters in a judicial election and how to make this information accessible to voters. The working group may consider whether it is appropriate or feasible to post judicial decisions on an Internet Web site maintained by a government entity.

AB 1463 now goes to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
