    Vehicle Code section 40500(b) authorizes the Judicial Council to prescribe the form of a Notice to Appear that is issued when a person is arrested for misdemeanor or infraction violations of the Vehicle Code. Penal Code section 853.9 further authorizes the council to approve Notice to Appear forms for nontraffic offenses. Penal Code section 959.1(d) permits a Notice to Appear issued on a form approved by the Judicial Council to be received and filed by a court in electronic form. In response to issues courts have reported with electronic citation forms and procedures and to improve uniformity of the content of Notice to Appear forms used for electronic citations issued by arresting officers, the Traffic Advisory Committee recommends amendments of the California Rules of Court and forms as specified effective April 1, 2015. The deadline for comments is 5:00 p.m., Monday, December 1, 2014.

    This proposal would amend California Rules of Court, rule 10.64, the rule for the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee, to make a change to the membership category for presiding judges.

    SP14-07:  Judicial Administration: Rules for Advisory Groups

    The deadline for comments is 5:00 p.m., Friday, October 3, 2014.
     
    SP14-08: Criminal Justice Realignment: Imposition of Mandatory Supervision
    The Criminal Law Advisory Committee proposes amendments to rules 4.411 and 4.411.5 of the California Rules of Court and adoption of a new rule to govern the imposition of mandatory supervision under Penal Code section 1170(h)(5), including criteria for court consideration and contents and requirements for related probation reports. The proposal was developed in response to recent legislation that requires the Judicial Council to adopt these rules by January 1, 2015.
    The deadline for comments is 5:00 p.m., Friday, September 19, 2014.
