Legislature Cuts & Adds Expenses

The Legislature on June 10 approved measures to close a $295 million budget gap that included an additional $1 million cut in the judicial branch budget. The measure also requires the judicial branch to absorb $1.2 million in added costs to fund a previously-agreed increase in per-diem payments for court security officers and sheriff’s officers.

The Chief Justice last week also sent a letter to Gov. Lynch requesting that he defer all judicial appointments for the current fiscal year to provide budget flexibility for the courts. There are 11 full-time judicial vacancies at all court levels.

The next unpaid furlough date will be July 2.

Visit or the Judicial Branch website for updates on court budget issues.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
