The 25th Circuit Court in Marquette County could see the addition of a new judge.
Legislation introduced Wednesday in the State Senate and House of Representatives would add a second seat to the court.
The legislation is expected to pass and the addition of a second judge is something that can happen in the next two months, said State Representative Sara Cambensy.
The county is currently served by one circuit court judge, after a second position was eliminated in 2017.
Local officials and the legal community support the legislation, including 25th Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Mazzuchi.
