Summary
Summary
The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee's 2 Percent Funding Request Review Subcommittee presents recommendations on two courts' applications for supplemental funding. There is $37.7 million set-aside in the Trial Court Trust Fund for fiscal year 2015-2016, of which by statute up to 75 percent or $28.3 million may be allocated by the Judicial Council by October 31. Under the policy adopted by the Judicial Council, courts submitting on or before October 1 can only receive up to the amount the court contributed to the 2 percent state-level reserve fund. If the requested amount is beyond the court's contribution to the 2 percent state-level reserve fund, the Judicial Council may distribute more funding to the court, after October 31 and prior to March 15 of the fiscal year. The total amount requested by the two courts is $561,000.

Recommendation
Recommendation
Based on actions taken at its October 9, 2015 meeting the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee's 2 Percent Funding Request Review Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective October 27, 2015:
1. Allocate a one-time distribution of $49,000 to the Superior Court of Mono County.
2. Allocate a one-time distribution of $512,000 to the Superior Court of Tehama County. The Superior Court of Tehama County will reimburse the Trial Court Trust Fund (TCTF) 2 percent state-level reserve if any recovery occurs due to the civil suit the court has filed. If a subsequent application related to this request is submitted, the court must provide detailed financial information demonstrating why it is unable to address those costs within existing resources.
