Fresno Paper Sees ‘Glimmer’ Of Hope For Courts

That $100 million figure keeps holding on during the final weeks of California’s budget debate; that’s the amount of restored judicial branch funding that state lawmakers called for in their budget. Reading between the lines, it’s likely the most that courts advocates can hope for adding, and nobody expects it to stop the planned closures, although it might save a few jobs.
Los Angeles County might expect up to $30 million of that fund, if it gets passed, according to a solid story in The Fresno Bee newspaper. The paper also reports that ongoing reorganization efforts for L.A. County are under way, and many of the closures and shifts are happening in June.
Those moves should heat things up even more. Read the Fresno newspaper’s take on the situation here.
