Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Similar to SB 171, this legislation requires that counties provide a 5 percent pay raise for all constitutional officers (sheriff, clerk of superior court, tax commissioner and probate judge) and magistrate judges, effective January 1, 2021.  This is on top of all of the COLAs received since 2006, state and local supplements, the 5 percent pay raise received per each four-year term in office, and any fees a constitutional officer receives as personal compensation.  Regrettably, ACCG's efforts to require that, in order to receive another pay increase, local constitutional officers go through a similar process to what is required of county commissioners (providing a notice of intent and fiscal impact in the legal organ at least once a week for three consecutive weeks, then providing notice via a public hearing before a meeting of the respective county Board of Commissioners) failed.  To view constitutional officers' salaries, by county, please click here.
