Budget Issue: Shift state funding to pay for court security to counties.
Program: Judiciary
Finding or Recommendation: Governor's proposal to realign court security to counties does not make sense, because the state judicial system would continue to be responsible for the overall operation of the courts. As an alternative, we recommend the Legislature direct the courts to contract on a competitive basis for court security.
