California’s state bar leaders will submit a preliminary budget to the legislature next week that they say makes the case for an ongoing $100 annual fee increase for active attorneys in 2020, plus a one-time $210 charge for capital projects.

Bar trustees, meeting in San Francisco on Friday, said that without additional revenues the agency faces years of mounting budget deficits as well as potential hiring freezes, deferred maintenance and a slowdown in processing lawyer disciplinary cases.
