Donnelly, Brown Bill to Fund Understaffed Courts Voted Down

Posted on the 16 January 2014 by Jim Winburn @civicbeebuzz

0113_newswire_politics_w100_res72 SACRAMENTO – An attempt to pump more money into underfunded courthouses has died in committee.

Assembly Bill 1313, authored by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Hesperia, would have paid for up to 12 additional courtroom staff positions in the counties with the greatest disparity between current staffing levels and those recommended by the Judicial Council, the California court system’s policy-making body.

“I can think of nothing more pressing than to ensure all Californians have access to constitutionally guaranteed justice,” Donnelly said. “It is unfortunate that some of my colleagues don’t agree with me.”

The bill, which was sponsored by Inland Empire and Central Valley legislators from both sides of the aisle, died in committee Tuesday.

“In my conversation with Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, she acknowledged the need for 50 additional judgeships in San Bernardino County,” Assemblywoman Cheryl Brown, D-San Bernardino, Donnelly’s primary co-sponsor, said Wednesday, “AB 1313 would have addressed this issue by allowing our court system to gain 12 additional judgeships each year.”

The assemblywoman vowed to continue the fight.
