The purpose of the Trial Court Budget Commission is to oversee the preparation and implementation of the trial court component of the judicial branch budget. The commission is directly responsible for recommending budgeting and funding policies and procedures for the trial court budget, in order to support a trial court system that will effectively carry out the administration of justice.

When the commission was originally appointed, a system of staggered terms was instituted to avoid majority turnover in any year. Additionally, pursuant to rule 2.230, Florida Rules of Judicial Administration, the membership must include 14 trial court judges and 7 trial court administrators.

A vacancy will exist on the commission due to the retirement of The Honorable Robert E. Roundtree, Jr., Circuit Court Judge in the Eighth Judicial Circuit. The Court acknowledges and appreciates Judge Roundtree’s service and leadership on the commission. The following person is appointed effective July 1, 2017, to fill the remainder of Judge Roundtree’s term, which will expire on November 30, 2018:
The Honorable Monica J. Brasington
Circuit Court Judge, Eighth Judicial Circuit
Further, The Honorable Margaret O. Steinbeck, Circuit Court Judge in the Twentieth Judicial Circuit and a commission member, is appointed effective July 1, 2017, to fill the remainder of Judge Roundtree’s term as commission chair, which expires on June 30, 2018.
