Current Bill Summary

SB 1141 - The act modifies the transition periods for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Auditor, and Treasurer. Currently, all of the periods begin on the 15th day of November following the election. This date is changed to the 1st day following the election. Expenses incurred during the period may be paid after the actual end of the period. The Commissioner of Administration will request separate funding to cover the costs for setting up transition facilities in each of the offices so that they are operational the day following the election. The act also repeals references to typewriters, adding machines, duplicating machines, and payments for rentals and equipment purchases.

This act is similar to HB 255 (2007).
