"As the agency's re- sponsibilities and services to the courts have increased, so have the resources entrusted to it. "We expect that the work of the advisory committee will enable us to increase un- derstanding about the needs of the state judicial branch, as well as ensure measures of transparency and account- ability that are appropriate in the use of public re- sources. At the same time, the additional review of bud- get requests and audit re- ports will help the judicial council set priorities and meet the needs of state courts and the millions of Californians that we serve." Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael P. Vi- cencia, president of the Cali- fornia Judges Association, commented, "I am pleased that the chief justice has tak- en this step toward greater accountability and oversight of the AOC by judges and other members of the judi- cial branch. As elected mem- bers of the branch, it is the responsibility of every judge to ensure public governance. My hope is that this new il committee will help fulfill that obligation."
