Reimbursement of Expenses for Judges (language only)

Item 31 #1h

Item 31 #1h

Judicial Department
Court of Appeals of Virginia

Page 18, strike lines 28 through 33 and insert:
"4.  To each judge, $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 judges appointed to the Court of Appeals of Virginia. Current language suggests that the amounts provided for the reimbursement of the judges are primarily for the costs of travel. This amendment ensures that the judges may be reimbursed for any costs for which they are not reimbursed by the Court of Appeals up to a limit of $6,500.)
