Court Administration

Issue: Court Security

Impact:

Court buildings are obvious targets for domestic and international violence and terrorism, and need to fund increased security precautions.

Position:

State court leaders request that Congress ensure that state and territorial courts are included in the planning and disbursement of federal funding related to homeland and court security, urge direct funding to state and territorial courts, and support federal legislative efforts to ensure that state and territorial courts are eligible to apply for security-related federal grants.  (CCJ Resolution 12-M-5 and COSCA Resolution 12-B-5)
