The District Court of Appeal Budget Commission was created to oversee the preparation and implementation of the district court component of the judicial branch budget. The commission is directly responsible for recommending budgeting and funding policies and procedures for the district court budgets, so that the funding requirements of each of the intermediate appellate courts can be adequately addressed while promoting statewide operational consistency.

Accordingly, the following individuals are appointed to the commission for terms that extend through their service as chief judge of the respective district court of appeal:

Fernandez is appointed to serve as the second judge member from the Third District Court of Appeal, for a term that expires on June 30, 2021, which is the remainder of the unexpired term held by his predecessor in that position.
