23  a public need for independent court reporters and that it is

24  necessary to assure the public and litigants that they will

25  always be able to identify and locate a court reporter who

26  recorded and transcribed any portion of an official

27  proceeding, testimony, deposition, or trial and, therefore,

28  deems it necessary to require registration of court reporters.

29         (2)  COURT REPORTING DEFINED.--The term "court

30  reporting" means the act of making a verbatim record of spoken

31  word, whether by use of written symbols, stenomask equipment,

14  maintain a registry of all court reporters who transcribe any

15  proceeding held in the state. The association shall determine

16  an annual fee to be collected by the association for the

17  purpose of maintaining a statewide registry of all Florida

18  court reporters. The registration fee must cover the normal

19  and customary costs associated with the creation and

20  maintenance of the registry. Upon registration, the

21  association shall issue each court reporter a registration

22  number that must appear on all transcripts taken or used in

23  any court proceeding, administrative hearing, or official

24  meeting of any public body. The Florida Court Reporters
