    Line 145 still refers to the 3 year term, rather than the proposed 5 year term. I support the change to a 5 year term.

    On line 12-13, I think the citation to section 78B-22-802 is incorrect. Section 78B-22-102 defines “indigent defense service provider,” “indigent individual,” and “indigent defense services.” It seems like the second citation should maybe be to 78B-22-901 or -902. On line 23, it may make sense to add the word “defense” to “indigent service provider attorneys,” so it reads “indigent defense service provider attorneys.”
