The Supreme Court of Appeals shall conduct a study to determine the feasibility of a system of jury selection for petit juries in West Virginia wherein those prospective jurors who are called for jury duty are required to report for duty for not more than one day or until the completion of one trial for which they are chosen on that day. The supreme court shall designate a judicial circuit within this state and direct the court of that circuit to order the jury commission of each county within the circuit to employ this a jury selection system in whole, or in part, from July 1, 1988, to June 30, 1989.
Before September 1, 1989, the jury commission shall prepare and deliver a report to the Supreme Court of Appeals relating the cost, efficiency, effectiveness and general acceptance of the system. The Supreme Court of Appeals shall report to the Legislature on the feasibility of the system before January 1, 1990. The Supreme Court of Appeals shall fund those expenses necessary to conduct this study out of the budget of the court.
