1641H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To repeal section 27.010, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to the attorney general.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 27.010, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu 2thereof, to be known as section 27.010, to read as follows:
27.010. The attorney general for the state of Missouri shall be elected at each general election at which a governor and other state officers are elected, and his term shall begin at 12:00 noon on the second Monday in January next succeeding his election, and shall continue for four years, or until his successor is elected and qualified. The attorney general shall [reside at the seat of government and] keep his office in the supreme court building, and receive an annual salary of sixty-five thousand dollars plus any salary adjustment provided pursuant to section 105.005, payable out of the state treasury. The salary shall constitute the total compensation for all duties to be performed by him and there shall be no further payments made to or accepted by him for the performance of any duty now required of him under any existing law. The attorney general shall devote his full time to his office, and, except in the performance of his official duties, shall not engage in the practice of law.
It would appear that Representative Marshall (r) has a different opinion about the meaning of the current statute than the Attorney General. Fancy that.
