The FY2015 judiciary budget request totals $7.30 billion, an increase of 3.7% over the FY2014 appropriations. This total includes $6.74 billion in discretionary funds, and $565.6 million in mandatory funding, which is used to pay the salaries and benefits of judges.
Two accounts fund the Supreme Court, a Salaries and Expenses account and a second account for the care of its building and grounds, which are the responsibility of the Architect of the Capitol. Together, these total approximately 1% of the judiciary budget. The rest of the judiciary’s budget provides funding for the “lower” federal courts and related judicial services.
