Washington, DC— The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) today marked up funding legislation that provides $328 million for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) in Fiscal Year 2013.
Rep. Norm Dicks (D-WA) and Rep. José E. Serrano (D-NY) both spoke on behalf of LSC. In a statement, Rep. Dicks said: “The Legal Services Corporation is also cut when it should be getting an increase. The recession has drastically increased the need for legal aid for those who can’t afford it, and the LSC helps to ensure that access to justice is not limited to those who can afford an attorney.”
