(a) There is hereby established in the state treasury the judicial branch nonjudicial
salary initiative fund.
(b) All moneys credited to the judicial branch nonjudicial salary initiative fund
shall be used for compensation of nonjudicial officers and employees of the district
courts, court of appeals and the supreme court and shall not be expended for compensation
of judges or justices of the judicial branch. Moneys in the fund shall be used only to pay for that portion of the cost of salaries
and wages of nonjudicial personnel of the judicial branch, including associated employer
contributions, which shall not exceed the difference between the amount of expenditures
that would be required under the judicial branch pay plan for nonjudicial personnel
in effect prior to the effective date of this act and the amount of expenditures required
under the judicial branch pay plan for nonjudicial personnel after the cost-of-living
adjustments and the adjustments for upgrades in pay rates for nonjudicial personnel
approved by the chief justice of the Kansas supreme court for fiscal year 2001. For fiscal years commencing on and after June 30, 2001, moneys in such fund shall
be used only for the amount attributable to maintenance of the judicial branch pay
plan for nonjudicial personnel for such adjustments and upgrades approved by the chief
justice of the supreme court for fiscal year 2001.
(c) All expenditures from the judicial branch nonjudicial salary initiative fund shall
be made in accordance with appropriation acts and upon warrants of the director of
accounts and reports issued pursuant to payrolls approved by the chief justice of
the Kansas supreme court or by a person or persons designated by the chief justice.
(d) The enactment of this legislation shall not be considered a statement of legislative
intent to endorse future state general fund financing for ensuing fiscal years for
the proposed nonjudicial pay plan contained in the report to the Kansas supreme court
by the nonjudicial salary initiative entitled nonjudicial employee compensation submitted
to the 2000 legislature.
