Current Bill Summary

SB 390 - This act removes three state holidays: Lincoln's birthday; Truman's birthday; and Columbus day. Employees employed as of January 1, 2002, would receive two extra hours of annual leave per month. New employees would accrue annual leave at the rate of 10 hours per month for the first five years of employment. Thereafter they would accrue leave and could carry the following maximum balances of annual leave:

Years of Service Annual Leave Maximum Leave Hours/Month Balance Less than 10 12 288 10 but less than 15 14 336 Greater than 15 16 384

On the employee's employment anniversary date, an employee who has accrued annual leave in excess of the maximum leave balance may direct the excess hours deposited in one of two ways: 1) to the credit of an approved departmental shared leave program; or 2) to be used for the purchase of additional retirement credits at the rate of 8 hours for 1 day of service. An employee would be limited to purchase 1,000 hours worth of retirement credits and the additional retirement credits will not be used to determine eligibility for retirement.
