    Regarding the appointment and removal of hearing commissioners, the proposed rule is a step in the right direction. I would recommend putting the name of a nominated hearing commissioner to a vote of the family law section of the bar prior to appointment, and if the family law section does not approve the nominee, giving the family section trump power over appointment. In terms of maintaining the commissioner on the bench, I would give the family law section trump power annually to remove the commissioner by majority vote. The attorneys who practice before the commissioners know how effective they are. I think our knowledge is far better than that of a committee or a judge.
