The Standing Committee on Budget and Finance met on March 27, 2009, to review the staff’s proposal for the 2009-10 operating budget. Immediately following the meeting, the proposed budget was sent to Chief Justice Leroy R. Hassell Sr. and all members of the Supreme Court of Virginia for their review and approval. The proposed budget was reviewed by the Virginia State Bar Executive Committee on April 24, 2009, and recommended for approval to the VSB Council. On June 18, 2009, the council approved an operating budget totaling $12,056,457 for fiscal year 2009-10. This budget reflected a decrease of $476,816 over the budget for the prior fiscal year, which ended on June 30, 2009.
