Senate Bill 103 as introduced provides for one additional circuit court judgeship in the 23rd, 19th, and 28th Judicial Circuits. According to the Administrative Office of Courts, this would increase the obligations of the State General Fund by an estimated $950,000 for fiscal year 2023 and $1.3 million dollars for fiscal year 2024 and each fiscal year thereafter.

In addition, this bill provides that the Judicial Resources Allocation Commission reallocate the first vacant circuit judgeship, that becomes vacant after the effective date of this bill, to the 23rd Judicial Circuit.
