The U.S. House seems ready to grant the U.S. Marshals Service request for a $4.8 million bump in funding for judicial protection operations and intelligence initiatives, Law.com reports. The funding, the first directly requested increase in appropriations for judicial protections in five years, will be used for adding 19 new positions, including 13 agents. A House report accompanying an appropriations bill for the U.S. Justice Department shows a $19.2 million increase from the amount dedicated overall to the topic in the previous fiscal year, which the Appropriations Committee noted would provide an increase for the Marshals Service.
