State Bar President Rodriguez Praises Governor on Court Funding

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Luis RodriguezSAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2014 – State Bar President Luis J. Rodriguez praised Gov. Jerry Brown for boosting state court funding even more than previously promised, and for two years.

“Gov. Brown is tasked with preserving the financial health of our State while providing necessary funding for services crucial to the well-being of the people of California. With this latest funding proposal for the courts, Gov. Brown has shown that he is committed to access to justice,” Rodriguez said.

“We are also deeply committed to the Chief Justice’s ongoing efforts to increase access to justice, as she continues her efforts to find more efficient ways to deliver justice to California’s population.”

Earlier today, Brown announced that in his revised budget he is proposing more funds for the trial courts as part of a two-year strategy to stabilize court funding.
