From the abstract:
In Keeping Courts Funded: Recommendations on How Courts Can Avoid the Budget Axe, executive branch policy and legislation advisor Greg A. Rowe provides 16 specific recommendations on how judicial branch leaders should interact with members of the state executive and legislative branch over budget issues. Recommendations include advice on how to understand the political environment, develop relationships with key groups and individuals, create a coherent communication strategy, and engage with the other branches during the budget process. As states apply these recommendations to their individual circumstances, a framework for advocacy efforts emerges.
