California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye issued this statement on the May budget revise:

The state’s economic outlook is in a vastly different place than it was in January. The projected budget deficit is sobering. The judicial branch is prepared to work with the Governor and the Legislature as we all try to maintain services for the public we serve. My hope is that the financial burden of a deficit will be shared fairly by all sectors of government. No one wants to turn away those coming to our courts to seek justice.
