Summary

Summary

At the September 21, 2018 Judicial Council meeting, the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee (TCBAC) was directed to report on outcomes related to new branch funding provided in the 2018 budget. Specifically, TCBAC was to compile information from the trial courts on the use and expenditure of $108.4 million of discretionary funds-$60.6 million plus $47.8 million directed at courts below the statewide average funding level-and $19.1 million allocated to self-help services. Additionally, TCBAC was to report on the $10 million (of the $75 million in discretionary funds) that was earmarked to increase the number of court reporters in family law. The new funding has increased public access to court services, expanded services, decreased backlog, and enhanced operational stability in order to serve the public more efficiently and effectively.
