(5) Sections 48.06(2)(a) and 938.06(2)(a): approval of circuit judge's policy governing juvenile intake workers in counties with a population of less than 500,000.

 . . . 

Section 2.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, effective on the date of this order, 70.21(7q) and (10q) of the supreme court rules are created to read:

70.21(7q) Section 48.07(5): recognize and obtain the services of a court-appointed special advocate program for proceedings under section 48.13 of the statutes.

 . . . 

(10q) Section 343.44(2)(d): adoption of sentencing guidelines for convictions resulting from violations for operating while suspended, revoked, ordered out-of-service or disqualified.

 . . . 

Section 3.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, effective on the date of this order, 70.21(20c) of the supreme court rules is repealed.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that notice of this amendment of the supreme court rules shall be given by a single publication of a copy of this order in the official state newspaper and in an official publication of the State Bar of Wisconsin.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin, this 18th day of December, 2000.
