Senate Committee OKs $430 Million for LSC

The Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday approved $430 million for the Legal Services Corporation in fiscal year 2014. According to an LSC press release, this amount represents a $90 million increase over LSC’s current funding level, and is consistent with the White House budget request for 2014. "We want to thank Senators (Barbara) Mikulski and (Richard) Shelby for showing such strong leadership and support for LSC, and for recognizing the importance of federally funded civil legal aid,” LSC Board Chair John G. Levi said.
