Legislative Agenda as of March 10, 2016

This is an updated status report on the progress on VBA-supported legislation. In the budget conference report released last night, the General Assembly provided funds for three new judgeships, bringing the number of total funded judgeships to 408. The budget conference report also preserved General Assembly-approved legislation separating into two appointments a case that involves both custody and support for mediators who handle family cases from juvenile and domestic relations courts. The biennial budget report includes funding to increase compensation for mediators who handle appointments in these cases from $100 to $120 for the life of the budget. The regular session is scheduled to adjourn Saturday, March 12.
