Bills about the discharge of long-term inmates, judges' pensions, and various provisions concerning courts were among the remaining 33 bills sent to the governor's office that were signed into law yesterday.

SEA 258 deals with the discharge of long-term inmates, GPS monitoring of certain sex offenders, and the conditions for probation or parole of a sex offender.

SEA 329 allows full-time magistrates on or after July 1, 2010, to become participants in the judges' 1985 benefit system; increases the court administration fee from $3 to $5 with the additional amount being paid into the judges' retirement fund, except for Marion County small claims courts; and assigns a commission on courts to study the selection process for St. Joseph County judges.

HEA 1096 adds judges to the Franklin Circuit Court, Madison Superior Court, and Miami Superior Court; abolishes the Franklin Circuit magistrate, Madison County Court, Ohio County and Switzerland County Joint Superior Court, and the Jefferson County and Switzerland County Joint Fifth Judicial Circuit; and allows for additional changes as they relate to the courts.

A complete list of all the bills the governor has signed this session can be found at http://www.in.gov/gov/3246.htm.

Information about more bills will be included in the April 2-15, 2008, edition of Indiana Lawyer's Statehouse Report.
