Now that state law once again allows county commissioners to abolish the office jury commissioner, Carbon County wasted no time in doing away with the position.
Each county has two jury commissioners, one Democrat, the other Republican. Their job is to supervise the selection of people to serve on juries. But enough legislators believe that modern technology - jurors are now selected via drivers licenses has made the office obsolete.
So, on May 6, Gov. Tom Corbett signed into law Act 4, which allows county commissioners to do away with the office, once the current terms end.
