Bill to add circuit court judgeships still alive

As reported here ("Bill to add judges gets second chance in Senate," 2/21/04) in the Norfolk paper, legislation that would add five new circuit court judgeships, including one for the 29th Circuit including Buchanan, Dickenson, Tazewell, and Russell counties, is still alive in the Virginia Senate, though it was rejected by the House for lack of money.

In the 29th Circuit, there is no resident judge in Tazewell County, with Judge Vanover in Clintwood, Judge Williams in Grundy, and Judge Moore in Lebanon. (This fact evidently does not mean that the new judge, if there is one, will be from Tazewell County.)
