Assembly Bill 83 (Stats. 2020, ch. 15, § 1), effective June 29, 2020, amended Government Code section 12531(d) to provide for a one-time $31 million allocation to the judicial branch from the National Mortgage Settlement Fund to provide legal services in landlord-tenant matters. The statute provides that the Judicial Council allocate these funds to the State Bar, which distributes the funding to eligible legal services agencies. As directed by the Judicial Council at its meeting on September 25, 2020, the State Bar’s Legal Services Trust Fund Commission herein reports on the distribution of the funds according to the formula specified in the Budget Act.
