As Amends the Law Today

That Section 12 is added to Article VII thereof, to read:

SEC. 12.
 (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as the Public Executive Pay Reform Act of 2018.
(b) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, an employee of a public employer shall not receive an annual base salary or payrate that exceeds the salary of the Governor as established by the California Citizens Compensation Commission that is effective at the time the employment contract is entered.
(c) (1) Subdivision (b) shall not apply to a base salary or payrate under an employment contract that was effective immediately prior to the date this section becomes effective, but shall apply to an employment contact entered into, renewed, extended, or revised on or after that date.
(2) If a reduction in the Governor’s salary by the California Citizens Compensation Commission causes a valid employment contract to violate the prohibition described in subdivision (b) on the date the reduction takes effect, the reduced salary shall not apply to a base salary or payrate under the contract for its term, provided that subdivision (b) shall apply if the employment contract is renewed, extended, or revised and to any subsequent contract.
(d) For purposes of this section, “public employer” means the State, or a political subdivision of the State, including, but not limited to, counties, cities, charter counties, charter cities, a charter city and county, school districts, special districts, boards, commissions, the Regents of the University of California, the Trustees of the California State University, the Legislature, and the agencies thereof.
