Latest version.
  • A. Judges and commissioners of the Superior Court shall receive a monthly allowance of $350.00 for expenses associated with professional development activities. The auditor-controller shall adjust the professional development expense allowance each year based upon annual changes in the Consumer Price Index for the Los Angeles Metropolitan statistical area (CPI-U) published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor. Such adjustment shall be made effective February 1, 1990, based upon the published percentage change in the CPI between December, 1988, and December, 1989. Subsequent adjustments shall be made effective on February 1st of each year thereafter based upon the published percentage change in the CPI during the preceding calendar year, provided that such change is three percent or greater. If the published percentage change in a calendar year is less than three percent, that percentage change shall be cumulated with the published percentage change in the following calendar year(s) until such time as the cumulative percentage change is three percent or greater, at which time an adjustment shall be made to reflect the total cumulative percentage change. Such adjustments in the professional development expense allowance shall be rounded to the nearest dollar.
