SB824 by Burton (Relating to compensation of certain justices and judges for performing extrajudicial services.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Government Code to exclude from the statutory maximum salary of a judge compensation for extrajudicial services performed by a district judge. Based on the analysis of the Office of Court Administration, duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished using existing resources.
Local Government Impact
According to the Office of Court Administration, the amount of additional compensation allowed to be paid to district judges by counties would increase; however, the increase would be permissive. Therefore, any fiscal impact would be made voluntarily by counties. No significant fiscal impact is anticipated.
According to Dallas County, no fiscal impact is anticipated.
