Objections to business records as evidence. Provides that, if a pro se party receives written notice, a copy of the record, and certification from a proponent of a business record and subsequently retains counsel, counsel may file any objections within five days of entering an appearance, so long as counsel enters an appearance at least 15 days before trial or hearing. Where written notice and certification is provided to a pro se defendant, the bill requires additional language to be contained in the written notice advising the pro se party of the purpose of the written notice and certification.
