The budget provides $560.9 million in funding for the trial court. Additionally, the trial court was granted transferability giving the court administrator flexibility needed to manage the trial courts business and administrative operations. Additionally, the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation got $12 million for fiscal year 2013.
