Fee bill progresses in Sacramento

The State Bar 2009 fee bill was approved by the Assembly last month. AB 3049 adds a $10 building assessment to the base $315 fee and with other assessments for discipline ($25), technology ($10), the Client Security Fund ($40) and the Lawyer Assistance Program ($10), will bring the dues for most active lawyers to $410.

The additional fee was authorized for five years and will fund bar facilities in southern California, either with new rental space or construction or purchase of a new building.

The Assembly analysis of the bill projects a $2.3 million deficit at the end of 2010 if dues are not increased.
