BILL NUMBER:S1317

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the surrogate's court procedure act, in relation to the
compensation of the public administrators

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Amends Section 1105 of the surrogate's court procedure act to provide
that the Public Administrators in New York City would receive at
least ninety percent of the amount paid to judges of the Surrogate's
Court of the counties in New York City.

JUSTIFICATION:
Current law sets the salary of Public Administrators as at least
two-thirds of the salary of Judges of the Surrogate's Court. In a
recent change by the New York City Council, this was adjusted to at
least 90% of the salary of Judges of the Surrogate's Court. This
legislation will conform State law to the City statute.

2011-2012: No Same As/S.3609 - Referred to Judiciary

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS;
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have
become a law.
