(This amendment provides $898,406 the first year and $1.8 million the second year from the general fund to support the addition of 49.0 positions for the general district courts. The Committee on District Courts shall allocate these positions among the general district courts, juvenile and domestic relations district courts, and combined district courts in such a manner as to ensure that each court has at least 85 percent of the positions required by the judicial system staffing model. The Committee on District Courts originally recommended an additional 170.2 positions to implement the staffing model's recommendations. This amendment is a first step toward meeting that requirement.)
