(This amendment reflects expected savings to the criminal fund from a proposal included in the introduced budget to hire five additional foreign language interpreters. Beginning in fiscal year 2008 the Supreme Court hired 10 full-time positions to serve the court system as foriegn language interpreters. Initial data shows that the full time staff have been cost effective compared to paying for these services through private foreign language interpreters through the criminal fund. This amendment reflects an assumed reduction in criminal fund expenditures as a result of the five new FTEs.)
