SCS/SB 260 - This act defines an "accounting officer" as the county auditor in counties of the first and second classification and county clerks in counties of the third and fourth classification. Currently, the statute uses out-of-date terminology to classify counties.

This act also defines a "budget officer" as a person appointed by the county commission of counties of the first classification or the presiding commissioner in Cass County and counties of the second classification, unless the commission designates the county clerk. The "budget officer" in counties of the third and fourth classification is the county clerk. Currently, the statute provides that the presiding commissioner is the "budget officer" only in counties of the second classification.

This act is similar to certain provisions in CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 58 & CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 210 (2005).
