The FY2016 judiciary budget request totals $7.53 billion, an increase of 3.8% over the FY2015 appropriations. This total includes $6.96 billion in discretionary funds, and $571.1 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 an account for the care of its building and grounds, which is the responsibility of the Architect of the Capitol. Together, these total approximately 1% of the judiciary’s budget. The rest of the judiciary’s budget provides funding for the “lower” federal courts and related judicial services.
