Current Bill Summary


SS/SCS/SB 568 - This act modifies provisions relating to salaries of county officials.

This act provides that a county salary commission may increase the base salaries of all county office holders, other than the sheriff and full-time prosecutor, by up to $2,000, so long as the increase in pay applies to all such positions.

The salary of the county sheriff may have a base increase of up to $6,000 subject to the approval of the county salary commission.

Currently, salary commissions may only meet in odd-numbered years. This act authorizes a commission to meet in even-numbered years.

This act is similar to HCS/HB 2038 (2018).
