Vanderburgh County Circuit Court takes a step in adding another magistrate.

A bill that would allow the court judge to appoint a second full-time magistrate passed the state Courts and Criminal Code Committee today. It will now be sent to the House Ways and Means Committee for further discussion.

State Representatives Tom Washburne, Gail Riecken, Holli Sullivan, and Wendy McNamara introduced the bill.
