    I move that House Bill 1218 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 27, line 30; (05)MO121801.27. -->     Page 27, between lines 30 and 31, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 36-6-6-10; (05)MO121801.42. -->     "SECTION 42. IC 36-6-6-10 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2005]: Sec. 10. (a) This section does not apply to the appropriation of money to pay a deputy, an employee, or a technical adviser that assists a township assessor with assessment duties or to an elected township assessor.
    (b) The township legislative body shall fix the:
        (1) salaries;
        (2) wages;
        (3) rates of hourly pay; and
        (4) remuneration other than statutory allowances;
of all officers and employees of the township.
    (c) Subject to subsection (d), the township legislative body may reduce the salary of an elected or appointed official. However, except as provided in subsection (i), the official is entitled to a salary that is not less than the salary fixed for the first year of the term of office that immediately preceded the current term of office.
    (d) Except as provided in subsection subsections (e) and (i), the township legislative body may not alter the salaries of elected or appointed officers during the fiscal year for which they are fixed, but it may add or eliminate any other position and change the salary of any other employee, if the necessary funds and appropriations are available.
    (e) In a township that does not elect a township assessor under IC 36-6-5-1, the township legislative body may appropriate available township funds to supplement the salaries of elected or appointed

officers to compensate them for performing assessing duties. However, in any calendar year no officer or employee may receive a salary and additional salary supplements which exceed the salary fixed for that officer or employee under subsection (b).
    (f) If a change in the mileage allowance paid to state officers and employees is established by July 1 of any year, that change shall be included in the compensation fixed for the township executive and assessor under this section, to take effect January 1 of the next year. However, the township legislative body may by ordinance provide for the change in the sum per mile to take effect before January 1 of the next year.
    (g) The township legislative body may not reduce the salary of the township executive without the consent of the township executive during the term of office of the township executive as set forth in IC 36-6-4-2.
    (h) This subsection applies when a township executive dies or resigns from office. The person filling the vacancy of the township executive shall receive at least the same salary the previous township executive received for the remainder of the unexpired term of office of the township executive (as set forth in IC 36-6-4-2), unless the person consents to a reduction in salary.
     (i) In a year in which there is not an election of members to the township legislative body, the township legislative body may by unanimous vote reduce the salaries of the members of the township legislative body by any amount.".
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
