More News for Legal Services Corp.

An Update: A few weeks ago, we told you about slashes in funds to Legal Services Corp. and the legal services jobs that would be lost as a result.  This week, good news appeared on the horizon.  President Obama has urged Congress to increase funds to LSC for fiscal year 2013.  The proposal would mean a 15.5% increase in the agency’s current budget.  The agency has requested a 35% increase for 2013, however, which means that even if President Obama’s recommendation is heard, Legal Services Corp. will still be in great need.  Still, any increase in funding means more people can receive the legal services they need.
