The Legislature appropriated $50 million for the new courthouse in 2021 and another $9 million last session. The building will bare the name of  the late State Attorney Bernie McCabe. McCabe passed away in January 2021 after 48 years of service to the people of Pinellas and Pasco counties. His passing marked the end of a career of service that dated back to 1972.

McCabe was one of the first state attorneys in Florida to start a Drug Treatment Court and the first to create a Veterans Treatment Court.
