DENVER, Colo. (AP) Colorado's chief federal judge is warning the state's congressional delegation that public safety could be endangered if court funding cuts are not reversed.

The federal cuts went into effect on March 1 after several years of stable funding.

According to the Denver Post, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Marcia Krieger says the cuts have resulted in reduced court staffs, furloughs and reduced funding for probation officers.
