Summary as introduced:
Personal appearance by two-way electronic video and audio communication. Requires any court to use two-way electronic video and audio communication, if available, in any pre-trial proceeding to determine bail or representation by counsel that would otherwise require the transportation of a person in order to appear in person before the court. Under current law, only district courts are required to use such communication to conduct these pre-trial proceedings and only if the person would have to be transported from outside the jurisdiction of the court conducting the proceeding.
