Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation mandates pay raises for coroners.  It first removes the current statutory restriction that there be only one deputy coroner and authorizes the coroner to set the deputy coroner's salary at one-half the coroner's salary, or at one-quarter of the coroner's salary plus a fee of $250 for each case worked.  It then sets up a state-mandated base pay scale and throws in a substantial raise - similar to what's in statute for constitutional officers.  This is in addition to the COLAs coroners have received commensurate to state employee pay increases.  To boot, the office or coroner shall be a full-time position, and the county governing authority shall provide the coroner the same employment benefits it provides other constitutional officers.
