UPDATE: House Passes Judiciary Funding Bill

Just before heading home on its July recess, the House passed H.R. 2829, the FY 2008 Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill. The bill retained the funding level for the Judiciary previously approved by the House Appropriations Committee. As reported last month, overall the Judiciary would receive $6.258 billion, a 4.7 percent increase over FY 2007 funding levels, with a 4.1 percent increase for the Salaries and Expenses account. The Judiciary had requested an overall 7.6 percent increase above FY 07 enacted appropriations with a 6.7 percent increase in the Salaries and Expenses account, and will seek a higher funding level from the Senate.
