Fall bishops' meeting 2013

Bishops approve 2014 budget, 3 percent assessment increase for 2015

 | 

The U.S. bishops, in separate votes Tuesday, approved a budget for the year 2014 and a 3 percent increase in diocesan assessments starting in 2015.

The bishops also approved a proposal to modify that U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' bylaws to allow the chairman of its audit subcommittee to be chosen from among their overall membership rather than restrict the choice to those bishops currently serving on the USCCB Administrative Board, as has currently been the practice.

All three votes took place the second day of the annual USCCB fall general assembly in Baltimore.
