Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation authorizes counties to establish the compensation of coroners and deputy coroners, unless said salaries are already covered by local legislation.  Counties with a population of less than 34,999 must continue to offer the state's minimum salaries.  Counties are able to offer COLAs and longevity increases (which are currently required), but there can be no double dipping on state, then local COLAs.  Counties can elect not to set these salaries, but maintain the status quo spelled out in state law.
