    MADAM PRESIDENT:

        I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

    A SENATE RESOLUTION urging the legislative council to assign to the commission on courts issues relating to judicial mandates and attorney's fees.

    Whereas, The Indiana General Assembly has not previously addressed the self-imposed authority of state courts to issue mandates for funds under Trial Rule 60.5: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the commission on courts study the historical use of Trial Rule 60.5 by courts, its affect on the budgets of civil units of government, and the expenses incurred by units in defending themselves against mandates, and that the commission make recommendations to the general assembly.
