Current Bill Summary

SB 1159 - This act provides a one-time pay increase (on July 1, 2003) for Corrections Officers in the amount of $30 per month for each year of service. The act further states Corrections officers who have accrued overtime hours may choose to convert those hours to compensatory leave time so long as the leave time is available and agreed to by the officer and his/her supervisor.

Additionally, the act asserts that if a Corrections Officer has accrued more than 40 hours of overtime in 2003, that officer may apply in writing, to the Department, if the officer wishes to be paid for the time in lieu of utilizing the compensatory leave option. The Department of Corrections is required to pay the corrections officer in full for any overtime hours accrued up to the date of the receipt of the notice.

Beginning in FY 2004, and all fiscal years thereafter, the Department of Corrections is required to pay all corrections officers in full for any unused overtime hours accrued during the previous calendar year.

This act is subject to appropriations.
