Current Bill Summary

SB 1088 - Currently, if a public administrator of a second, third, or fourth class county or of the City of St. Louis elects to be placed on salary, the salary is determined by a schedule based on the average number of open letters in the two years preceding the term in which the salary is elected. This act provides that every public administrator who begins his or her term on or after January 1, 2023, shall be deemed to have elected to receive such salary. This act also provides that a letter of guardianship and a letter of conservatorship shall be counted as separate letters. Additionally, it shall be two letters if the public administrator is appointed by the court as both a guardian and a conservator to the same ward or protectee.

Furthermore, this act provides that upon majority approval by the salary commission, a public administrator may be paid according to the assessed valuation schedule set forth in the act. If the salary commission elects to pay a public administrator according to the assessed valuation schedule, the salary commission shall not elect to change at any future time to pay the public administrator according to the average number of open letters in lieu of paying them according to the assessed valuation schedule.

This act is identical to a provision in the truly agreed to and finally passed CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 1606 (2022), in HCS/SS/SCS/SB 724 (2022), and in HCS/SB 845 (2022), is substantially similar to a provision in SCS/HB 1541 (2022), HB 2450 (2022), and HB 1287 (2021), and is similar to SB 803 (2020).
