Andersson Advances Measure to Simplify Subpoena Process

Representative Steve Andersson presented Senate Bill 45 in the Judiciary Civil Committee hearing this morning.   This legislation creates the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act, and provides more specific guidelines for the issuance of subpoenas. This Act has already been adopted by 31 other states, and the District of Colombia.

State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) initiated this legislation in the Senate, and Rep. Andersson is the chief sponsor of this bill in the House. After passing in the Senate, the bill was presented by Andersson in the Judiciary Civil Committee where it passed unanimously, and the bill will now move on for further approval in the House.

Andersson says, “This bill clarifies the guidelines for the issuance of subpoenas and will simplify the judicial process, creating a more streamlined process. While many other states have already done this, this law will help make the legal process more responsive and expedite the judicial proceedings.”
