Jones-Sawyer Announces $100 million in additional funding for California’s judicial system

(SACRAMENTO)  Assemblymember Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer, Sr. (D-Los Angeles), Chair of the California State Assembly’s Sub-Committee # 5 on Public Safety, announced the committee’s approval of  $100 million  in increased funding to establish fiscal accountability and transparency of the state’s judicial system.

“This funding will help restore the access of the public to the judicial system” said Jones-Sawyer. “The lack of funding for court interpreters, court reporters, clerks and court staff to assist in everything from filing court documents to providing information, has created devastating delays of time, familial disruptions and continued fiscal hardships.”
