Current Bill Summary


SB 1193 - Currently, the salary schedule in statute serves as a base salary for county sheriffs and the county salary commission is responsible for computing the salary of elected county officials. Under this act, the sheriff's salary shall not be determined by the commission, rather it shall be set as a percentage of the salary of an associate circuit judge. The percentage is based on the classification of the county in which the sheriff serves. Any sheriff receiving a salary greater than the salaries required under this act, as of August 28, 2008, shall not have his or her salary reduced and shall continue to receive his or her salary as provided on such date.
