Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday presented what he called a budget “of correction and normalcy” that relies heavily on tapping reserves and delaying programs to close a projected $37.8 billion deficit but largely spares California’s courts from cuts.

The 2024-25 spending proposal lays out a $5.2 billion spending plan for the judicial branch, including $3 billion for trial court operations. Newsom’s plan adds $311 million for increasing court employee health care costs, courthouse maintenance, self-help centers and other core branch operations. And it provides $89.5 million for the new Sixth District Court of Appeal courthouse in Sunnyvale.
