Sec. 10. Pilot programs.
(a) The General Assembly encourages the Supreme Court to develop: (i) a pilot program to create a statewide military personnel and veterans' legal assistance hotline and coordinated network of legal support resources; and (ii) a pilot program to provide court-based legal assistance within a circuit court in each appellate district of this State.
(b) The General Assembly recommends that the rules developing the pilot programs:
(1) provide intake, screening, and varying levels of
legal assistance to ensure that the parties served by these programs have meaningful access to justice;
(2) gather information on the outcomes associated
with providing the services described in paragraph (1) of this subsection; and

disposition by default.
