Florida lawmakers didn’t forget the “unsung heroes” of the court system — judges of compensation claims and administrative law judges — when they approved a $112.1 billion budget for FY 2022-23.

Division of Administrative Hearings Chief Judge and Director Peter Antonacci said he was grateful that lawmakers agreed to grant pay raises of up to 24%.

“I’m incredibly appreciative that the governor recommended it and the Legislature acted on it,” he said.
