In addition to the Chief Justice, Commission members include Department of Children and Family Services Secretary Marketa Walters, Louisiana State Bar Association President Dona Renegar, Judge Anastasia Wiley (President of the Louisiana Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges), Senator Rick Ward (Chair, Senate Committee Judiciary A) , Representative Ray Garofalo (Chair, House Committee on Civil Law and Procedure), Rep.
