On behalf of the Supreme Court, Chief Justice David A. Brock issued the following statement in response to today’s action by the Legislative Performance Audit and Oversight Committee:

"The court has demonstrated its desire and willingness to talk with other branches of government about important issues of mutual interest. On September 26, 2001, in an effort to further that dialogue, we sent a letter to the Governor and legislative leaders hoping to initiate a process for discussion.

We believe it is important that we have the opportunity to communicate our concerns with one another. We are certainly willing to discuss the way in which information can be provided to the legislature so it can perform its constitutional responsibilities."
