    Good Morning,

    I read in your filing for additional time:

    "There are at approximately 100 Family Law Rules. Some of the rules raise intricate issues that necessitated deliberations by workgroups and Task Force members at multiple meetings. In addition to restyling these rules, members have recommended a variety of organizational and SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES. (?)

    Despite more than 60 meetings ...Where and when were the 60 open meetings posted and held?

    Where and when will the additional meetings be posted for the public to attend, and as stated in the pleading for additional time, before submitting?

    [Additional time also would permit the Task Force to obtain input from interested stakeholders, as the administrative order directs, before filing a rule petition]

    Please post where interested stakeholders are to submit input, and where and when the meetings are going to be held for all the workgroups as it appears they have met with out public access.

    Thank you!!

    Petitioner would like to reply to the Task Force concerning their motion and request as follows:

    The Task Force states:
    "There are at approximately 100 Family Law Rules. Some of the rules raise intricate issues that necessitated deliberations by workgroups and Task Force members at multiple meetings. In addition to restyling these rules, members have recommended a variety of organizational and [substantive changes].

    “Despite more than [60 meetings] and earnest efforts to complete a petition to restyle the Family Law Rules, the Task Force is unable to meet the January 10, 2018, filing date set by A.O. 2016-131.”

    “[Additional time also would permit the Task Force to obtain input from interested stakeholders, as the administrative order directs, before filing a rule petition]”

    Request
    There were 12 meetings scheduled and posted, but 60 occurred.

    1. Please provide dates, times and locations of the additional meetings, and where the information is posted for the interested stakeholders/public to be able to attend, as it appears they have met without public access, 48 times.

    2. Please provide an email to submit stakeholder’s input electronically as an alternative to attending in person due to work or other responsibilities.

    RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED this 30th day of January, 2018.

    /s/ Patricia Cummins
