Following Governor Gavin Newsom's signing of the 2019-20 Budget Act, Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye released this statement:

This year’s budget is good news for residents who rely on California’s judicial system.

Both Governor Newsom’s initial budget proposal in January and the Legislature’s follow through in its budget process demonstrate a joint commitment to providing equal access to justice.

This budget reflects years of advocacy for more trial court judges in the fastest growing parts of our state and will help courts continue initiatives that help break down barriers for all Californians seeking justice.
