Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the salary categorization of locally elected officers in specified counties.

Current law categorizes each county for purposes of establishing the salaries of elected county officials in the county. The statutory salary amounts are adjusted every 2 years for inflation and take effect for terms commencing after any change is made. The bill modifies the categories of 4 counties with the accompanying percentage increase in salary as follows:


  • Grand county changes from category III-D to category III-B (20% increase);
  • Rio Grande county changes from category IV-D to category IV-C (10% increase);
  • Saguache county changes from category V-D to category V-B (20% increase); and
  • Jackson county changes from category VI-D to category VI-C (10% increase).
    (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
