Recommendation

The Judicial Branch Budget Committee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective July 24, 2020, approve the following 2021-22 budget change proposals (not in priority order) for submission to the state Department of Finance on September 4, 2020:

 

                     Proposition 66 Costs in the Courts of Appeal, Trial Courts, and Habeas Corpus Resource Center: $18.5 million

                     Self-Help Centers in Trial Courts--Continuing Funding: $19.1 million

                     Insolvency Resolution for State Court Facilities Construction Fund: $90 million

                     Trial Court and Court of Appeal Facility Operations and Maintenance, Leased Space, and Deferred Maintenance: $164.8 million

                     Inflationary Adjustment for Trial Courts: $50-$70 million

                     Various Capital Outlay Projects: $TBD

 

Previously the Judicial Branch Budget Committee recommended submission to the Department of Finance of two budget change proposals for technology upgrades:

 

                     Judicial Branch Office of Information Security: $5.1 million

                     Virtual Courthouse Critical Needs: $12.3 million

 

As contemplated, since the 2020-21 enacted budget includes $25 million for technology upgrades, the budget committee deleted the above proposals.
