Budget Issue: Transfer of $200 million in court construction funds to the General Fund
Program: Judiciary
Finding or Recommendation: Approve Governor's January proposal to transfer $200 million from the Immediate and Critical Needs Account to the General Fund because of the fiscal benefit it provides the state. Require the branch to report in budget hearings on how project delays will be prioritized and whether the need or scope of current projects have changed due to trial court operational changes.
