The City Council has introduced legislation that would create New York City's first civil justice coordinator.

The office would connect lawyers with people facing non-criminal issues. Those include housing court, immigration, custody, and other civil cases.

The legislation was introduced on Tuesday. It was a key component of City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito's State of the City address earlier this year.

The office would have an annual budget of $2 million.
