UNDATED (WHTC) -- A measure introduced by a Lakeshore Senator could make searching government records a bit easier for local governments and citizens. State Representative Amanda Price authored House Bill 4532 which gives local governments the option to switch to digital record-keeping for court filings. Current regulations prevent courts from digitizing their records. Price said, “By allowing our courts to find the best record-keeping process for their needs, we can make the entire process more efficient and effective – and save our local governments and hard-working taxpayers money at the same time.” Besides eliminating the requirement that all writs, proceedings and records be “on paper”, the legislation allows documents to be signed electronically.
