House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement today in response to the House passing court reorganization legislation:
“I am pleased that the House and Senate have been able to agree on language targeted at the reorganization of the judicial system in Massachusetts. I believe that many of the strong initiatives we passed in the House version of the bill have made their way into the final compromise.
This is a good and very important first step in the process of making changes to, and improving, an otherwise antiquated set of governing rules for the court system in the Commonwealth. It is the intention of both the House and Senate that this bill will bring serious court reform to the Bay State.
I look forward to Governor Patrick’s review and ultimately his signature on this piece of bi-partisan legislation.”
