LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1630, as amended, Olsen. Stanislaus County Superior Court: official court reporters.
Under existing law, the state has sole responsibility for the funding of court operations. Existing law authorizes a superior court to appoint as many official court reporters, and official court reporters pro tempore, as are deemed necessary. Those court reporters who are court employees are subject to the Trial Court Employment Protection and Governance Act, which authorizes each trial court to establish a salary range for each of its employee classifications. Existing law also prescribes the compensation of official court reporters and official court reporters pro tempore in Stanislaus County.
This bill would repeal a provision those provisions of law prescribing the compensation of official court reporters in Stanislaus County that has have been rendered obsolete by that act. The bill would provide that the repeal of a specified provision shall not affect the calculation of compensation for retirement purposes for any official court reporter first hired by the Stanislaus County Superior Court before January 1, 2013.
