The Judicial Council will be holding its regular business meeting via teleconference on Tuesday, March 24. A live videolink will be made available just before the start of the 9 a.m. meeting on the Council’s homepage; comments may be submitted electronically as detailed here.

Of particular note at next week’s meeting is proposed action on the judicial branch’s five-year infrastructure plan. Once approved, this plan will move to the Department of Finance. A table in the report (see page 5) that follows the staff memo found at the immediately preceding link details recommended trial court construction and renovation project priorities, listing a total of 33 projects slated to begin over the next five years with an estimated cost of over $5.3 billion. A number of projects in RCRC counties appear in the first and subsequent phases of the infrastructure plan.
