Discretionary appointment of counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
Legislation, Termination of Parental Rights (State) - Birth Parents
For termination of parental rights (TPR) proceedings, the court “may appoint an attorney” for indigent parents. § 128.100(2). Appointed counsel “is entitled to the same compensation and expenses from the county . . . for attorneys appointed to represent persons charged with crimes.” § 128.100(3).
Pursuant to the federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), courts must appoint counsel to represent indigent parents of an Indian child in TPR proceedings, and “[m]ay apply to the Secretary of the Interior for the payment of the fees and expenses of” appointed counsel. § 128.023(2)(a), (2)(c); § 62D.210(2)(a), (2)(c).

If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
