As your president, I have attended meetings of the Conference of the Chief Justices and of the National Association for Court Management. The focus of both conferences was the fiscal crisis confronting us. From chief justices to nonjudicial employees, the dominating topic of conversation was how do we survive the harsh reality of our economic times? I thought it would be of interest to share with you information collected by NCSC’s Budget Resource Center as to what some states have done in response.
