Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye today released the following statement on the Governor's May budget revise:
“The Governor’s May Revision to his proposed budget for the Judicial Branch is welcome news. It builds on his January budget proposal, restores previous cuts, expands pretrial programs focused on the safe and efficient release of arrestees, supports ongoing Judicial Council programs that address the needs of low-income court users, alleviates burdensome fines and fees for those who can’t afford them, and addresses pressing court infrastructure needs. In addition, his proposal bolsters efforts to assist courts recovering from pandemic-related challenges and backlogs.”
Memo on the 2021-2022 Judicial Branch Budget Update from Judicial Council Administrative Director Martin Hoshino.
