Today the Senate took a look at SB 853 - An Act to Modernize the Business Court in the Senate Finance Committee. The jurisdiction of that committee was the filing fee increase from $1000 to $1100 which the committee approved on Senator Apodaca's motion without discussion. Freshman Senator Tamara Barringer presented the bill. The Senate Judiciary I Committee will take up the bill tomorrow to look at the substantive proposed changes. You can view the bill here: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2013/Bills/Senate/PDF/S853v1.pdf. The NC Chamber looks to be pushing this bill hard. We can't tell how engaged the Administrative Office of the Courts is in this matter.
