20-1a14. Judicial branch nonjudicial salary initiative fund; authorized uses of moneys credited to fund. (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.
