The two Acts, while applying to different Code sections, have a similar effect on Georgia court procedures. SB 273 permits probate and municipal courts having jurisdiction over traffic offenses to request that the circuit district attorney or the state court solicitor in that country conduct trials on behalf of the state. SB 287, similarly, permits a district attorney to appear for the state in a delinquency hearing before a juvenile court, if the state is not represented by a solicitor and if that office is requested to do so by the court.
