Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger fears that cuts this session could hurt local courts. The short session gets underway in Salem Wednesday. Alan Unger says it’s going to be a big challenge dealing with a tight state budget. “When you look at the cuts they are going to make its going to be painful; and what I'm most worried about are the cuts they are going to make in the courts system, because if you don't support your judges then they can't hold court and if they can't hold court, an arm of the state government won't be able to function the way it should and what should function the most? I think it’s our courts." For example, Commissioner Unger says the planned cuts he saw for the courts show they may have to reduce the trial schedule by a full day each week. He says that could mean some civil suits won't get tried because the system would only have enough resources to focus on criminal cases.
