The Michigan Indigent Defense Commission met on December 19, 2017 and January 5, 2018 to review and make decisions on the compliance plans submitted by funding units for court systems statewide.
Of the 134 systems, all but two submitted plans for review and decision by the Commission. The MIDC will send formal notice of the decisions to all systems during the week of January 8, 2018.
Regional Managers have specific information about Commission decisions and staff feedback. They will be actively working with funding units on drafting amended plans for re-submission to the Commission, as required by statute.
