The Judicial Efficiency Act of 2006, introduced by Senator Bob Klitzkie (R), will go up for a public hearing this Friday. Among many provisions in the bill are considerations for eliminating annual leave for all judges and justices, and allow the Guam Judicial Council to increase the annual compensation of Superior Court judges.

The measure would additionally allow the Supreme Court to come up with guidelines and deadlines for Superior Court judges to complete their cases.

Meanwhile, Senator Klitzkie also introduced a bill that would repeal the Supreme Court's authority to issue declaratory judgments. That bill also goes up for public hearing on Friday.
