LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—The federal government is considering closing up to 60 court sites across the country as part of an effort to cut costs.
Many of the court sites are in rural areas and critics say closing them could make it more difficult for people to get to court proceedings.
Six of the 60 court sites that could be closed are in Arkansas. Texas and Georgia each have five sites on the list of possible closures.
Officials are even considering shuttering the court site in Alaska's capital city, Juneau.
The government ranked the court sites that could close based on categories such as usage and location.
Here is a list of the court sites the federal government is considering closing in 29 states.
