Bill re trial court funding

SB 5454 would revise the funding system for trial courts in the state, increasing the portion that is paid by the state. (I read in the Senate bill report that Washington ranks 50th in state funding for trial courts. Because of local funding, our trial courts are not the worst funded in the country altogether, but still the statistic is startling.) The bill passed the Senate on March 14 (45-3) and is now in the House, where two committees (Judiciary and Appropriations) have recommended passage. Bill Information for SB 5454.
