amending Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 546.27, subdivision 2, by adding a subdivision.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:
At least annually, the Board on Judicial Standards shall review the compliance of each district judge with the provisions of subdivision 1. To facilitate this review, the director of the state judicial information system shall notify the executive secretary of the state Board on Judicial Standards when a matter exceeds 90 days without a disposition. The board shall notify the commissioner of management and budget of each judge not in compliance. If the board finds that a judge has compelling reasons for noncompliance, it may decide not to issue the notice. Upon notification that a judge is not in compliance, the commissioner of management and budget shall not pay the salary of that judge. The board may cancel a notice of noncompliance upon finding that a judge is in compliance, but in no event shall a judge be paid a salary for the period in which the notification of noncompliance was in effect.
