By Glenn Coughlan
It is time again to direct our efforts
toward obtaining passage of our leg-
islative program. Fortunately there are
relatively few meas-
ures involved. In the
past we    have at
times spread our-
selves too thin by
presenting so many
bills that efforts to-
ward passage of the
problem as a whole
was ineffective and
as a result some of the most important
measures failed.
Proposed legislation to be submitted
pursuant to direct of the convention at
Sun Valley is:
Appropriation to provide legislative
Appropriation for criminal rules
Legislation providing for incorpora-
tion of professional groups
Repeal of Idaho Code Sec. 15-1835
(Guardian ship sales)
Bill providing for number of signers
of petition for election as bar com-
Requirement that name of scriviner
appear on documents submitted for
Legislation regarding Uniform
Criminal Code
Adoption of Administrative Practice
Deed of trust foreclosure
Providing for increase in bar license
In addition to the above is 1961 Reso-
lution No. 6 which provides for increas-
ing the jurisdiction of the Probate and
Justice Courts to $1,000.00 together with
interest and costs. At the last general
election, HJR 10 passed by the previous
legislature was approved by the people.

This constitutional amendment permits
inferior court reform by the legislature.
A conferenc has been held by your com-
mission, the Supreme Court and the
Dean of the law school to consider the
proper steps to follow to achieve the
goal of inferior court reform. It was
determined at this conference that the
problem was so complex and involved
so many different facets effecting the
entire court system, that the legislation
covered by Resolution No. 6 would be
pramature and deleterious to the planned
program. In view of this, the Commis-
rion has submitted a request to the dis-
trict bar associations for permission to
omit the legislation as provided by Reso-
lution No. 6 from this year's legislative
program. Instead, a study is recom-
mended to determine what type of in-
ferior court reform would be best for
Idaho. Funds will be requested from
the legislature to conduct the study so
that necessary legislation can be pre-
pared to submit to the 1965 legislature
to put into effect the kind of inferior
court reform that will most benefit the
I call attention to what I consider the
most important bar legislation this year,
That is the legislation permitting a li-
cense fee increase. Passage of this leg-
islation is vital to the efficient function
and growth of your bar association. We
rre now operating on a deficit basis. If
we are to continue to provide the excel-
lent continuing legal education program,
our economics of law program, properly
police the profession, permit our commit-
tees to function .nd keep the excellent
sacrotarial and stenographic help we
have had in the past, we must provide
the funds which are required. I earnestly
urge every lawyer to lend his support to
obtaining passage of this bill and that
he make this support known to his
