Court Interpreters: Allocations and Reimbursements to Trial Courts: Allocation Methodology for Court Interpreters Program Shortfall (Action Required)

Summary

Summary

Current projections for the Court Interpreters Program (CIP) indicate that

the fund balance has been depleted, and with expenditures exceeding

allocations, the fund is insolvent. The Trial Court Budget Advisory

Committee (TCBAC) recommends approving a one-time allocation of fund

balance from the Trial Court Trust Fund (TCTF) to address an anticipated

shortfall in the CIP for fiscal year 2019-20, not to exceed the current

$13.5 million estimated amount required to cover cost increases and maintain

service levels, while TCBAC continues its development of a methodology

that addresses anticipated, ongoing funding shortfalls and reviews existing

methodologies.
