Yesterday I testified before the House Judiciary Committee opposing SB 11-013. I wanted to let everyone know what the results of the testimony were.
I testified representing theMAC, Tony Van Westrum represented the Bar, and Mark Loye represented both himself as a private mediator and Jefferson County. There were 4 people testifying in favor of the bill – 3 of the 4 all involved with “restorative mediation”.
The final vote was 5-5, which means the bill failed to pass out of Committee.
However, the House Judiciary Committee did vote to PI (Postpone Indefinitely) the bill
