  • IFO Releases Initial Revenue Estimates for FY 2021-2022
    Thursday, May 27, 2021
    In its initial revenue forecast offered on May 26, the IFO projected that federal stimulus will have a dramatic impact on FY 2021-2022 and future budget years. FY 2021-2022 revenues will fall short of projected goals by approximately $2.152 billion. For FY 2020-2021, the IFO is projecting that the state will have slightly less than $37.96 billion to spend, as it does not include the final amount revenue that would be available, as tax refunds (normally around $1.3 billion) still have to be deducted. Additional details can be found in the full report linked below. The IFO's official revenue estimate will be released by June 22.

  • CCAP Sends Letter to General Assembly on Judicial Computer System Funding
    Monday, March 29, 2021
    Based on conversations with the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) about funding for the Judicial Computer System (JCS), CCAP wrote a letter to both the House and Senate expressing our concerns about the future of the Unified Judicial System (UJS). Without adequate funding for JCS, AOPC will have to shut down the Common Pleas Case Management System (CPCMS). Without these systems in place, essential functions of county court systems will be lost and counties have had no opportunity or funding to plan for a system replacement.
