California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye today issued the following statement on Gov. Gavin Newsom's budget proposal for the judicial branch:

We are grateful for Governor Newsom’s budget proposal. It is welcome news for our residents, who rely on a fair, just, and accessible court system. The governor’s proposal clearly recognizes that fixing the state’s fines-and-fees funding model is a three-branch problem that requires a three-branch solution.

I also appreciate his proposal to fund a court navigator program, which I first proposed during my 2018 
State of the Judiciary address. This kind of program will assist millions of our court users in understanding and following court processes.
