Burr, Tillis Welcome Charlotte Courthouse Improvements

WASHINGTON – Today, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) welcome the inclusion of funding that will allow for long-awaited judicial infrastructure priorities in appropriations legislation. This will allow for an annex to the Jonas courthouse in Charlotte which opened in 1934 and is not large enough to meet current needs. North Carolina’s Senators released the following statement on the funding:

“We applaud Senator Boozman’s work to secure sufficient funding for our courthouse system, including the courthouse in Charlotte. The Charlotte courthouse has been sitting on the priority list for necessary upgrades to our judicial infrastructure for far too long. These funds will ensure that the federal judicial system has adequate resources to swiftly and fairly process cases.”
