California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye on Monday issued this statement on the budget signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom:

The initial budget for the coming fiscal year is not a surprise based on what the Governor laid out in his May Revise. As I said at the time, the projected budget deficit is sobering. I realize our unusual fiscal year may mean more budgetary changes later this summer or even this fall, if the federal government provides some relief in a COVID-19 stimulus bill. In the meantime, we in the judicial branch will do our best to serve the public in these unprecedented times of a global pandemic and recession.
