Reimbursement of Expenses for Justices (language only)

Item 26 #1h

Item 26 #1h

Judicial Department
Supreme Court

Page 17, strikes lines 10 through 15 and insert:
"3.  To each justice, $6,500 the first year and $6,500 the second year for expenses not otherwise reimbursed, said expenses to be paid out of the current appropriation to the Court."

(This amendment clarifies the reimbursement of expenses incurred by the justices appointed to the Virginia Supreme Court. Current language suggests that the amounts provided for the reimbursement of the justices are primarily for the costs of travel. This amendment ensures that the justices may be reimbursed for any costs for which they are not reimbursed by the Supreme Court up to a limit of $6,500.)
