Short description: 
CT CLERKS-CHILDS WAITING ROOM                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Clerks of Courts Act.  Permits the  county  board,  in      
   counties  over  400,000 and under 3,000,000 population, to establish a      
   children's waiting room for children whose parents  or  guardians  are      
   attending  a  court  hearing  as  a  litigant or witness.  Permits the      
   county board to require the clerk of the circuit court to  charge  and      
   collect  a  children's  waiting  room fee of not less than $2 nor more      
   than $5.  Provides that the fees shall be paid  by  each  party  in  a      
   civil  case.   Permits  the court to waive the fee.  Provides that the      
   fees shall be deposited in a special fund designated as the Children's      
   Waiting Room Fund.                                                          
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB845 fails to create a State mandate.       
          FISCAL NOTE (Attorney General)                                       
          No fiscal impact on operations of the Attorney General Office;       
          costs would be absorbed by existing resources.                       
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          The bill would neither decrease nor increase the need for the        
          number of judges.                                                    
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Changes the minimum population limit to include counties of  more      
   than   180,000  inhabitants  within  the  provisions  to  establish  a      
   children's waiting room with accompanying fee and fund.
