Current Bill Summary


SB 21 - This act provides the Missouri Supreme Court with the ability to transfer circuit and associate judge positions from one circuit to another as the administration of justice requires. The Supreme Court may transfer a judicial position only when a vacancy occurs, and must consider certain criteria before determining whether to transfer the position to a new circuit. Under this act the Supreme Court will not be able to alter the existing total number of circuit and associate circuit judge positions.

The act is identical to HB 374 (2013), HCS/HB 374 & 434 (2013), and HB 434 (2013).
