Lawmakers have work to do
April 7, 2023
The Legislature is gearing up to spend our money this week, so I thought I’d review some of the ways they plan to spend it.
First, they are planning to increase wages and funding for the courts. As a lawyer, I can see the need. I’m not going to argue about why the court system is so busy and overworked, because there is another approach to solving that problem. Let’s just admit there is a problem, and increased funding will certainly help. The Legislature will increase salaries for court staff, increase budgets and will allocate funds to pay judge’s clerks better.
I’m all in favor...
