A $50 million appropriation for a Sixth District Court of Appeal courthouse, nearly $22 million for targeted salary increases for court reporters, court interpreters, trial court staff attorneys and program specialists, and another $5 million for salary increases to retain and recruit appellate staff attorneys.

Those are just some of the spending priorities in the FY 2023-24 Judicial Branch Legislative Budget Request the Supreme Court recently approved.

Lawmakers will consider the request when they convene March 7 for a regular, 60-day session.
