BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 15A.083, 
subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 4.  [RANGES FOR OTHER JUDICIAL POSITIONS.] Salaries 
or salary ranges are provided for the following positions in the 
judicial branch of government.  The appointing authority of any 
position for which a salary range has been provided shall fix 
the individual salary within the prescribed range, considering 
the qualifications and overall performance of the 
employee.  Appointments to fill vacancies shall not be made 
above the midpoint of the salary range prescribed for the 
position unless the state court administrator has been consulted 
in advance and his approval obtained.  Any salary increase that 
would adjust an employee's rate of pay beyond the midpoint of 
the range prescribed for the position must be approved in 
advance by the state court administrator.  The supreme court 
shall set the salary of the state court administrator and the 
salaries of district court administrators.  The salary of the 
state court administrator or a district court administrator may 
not exceed the salary of a district court judge.  If district 
court administrators die, the amounts of their unpaid salaries 
for the months in which their deaths occur must be paid to their 
estates.  The salaries of the district administrators of the 
second, fourth, and sixth judicial districts may be supplemented 
by the appropriate county board in an amount not to exceed 
$10,000 per year.  The salary supplement may be made effective 
only until January 1, 1988. The salary of the state public 
defender shall be 95 percent of the salary of the attorney 
general.

    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 214.04, 
subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3.  The executive secretary of each health related 
and non-health related board shall be the chief administrative 
officer for the board but he shall not be a member of the 
board.  He shall maintain the records of the board, account for 
all fees received by it, supervise and direct employees 
servicing the board, and perform other services as directed by 
the board.  The executive secretaries and other employees of the 
following boards shall be hired by the board, and the executive 
secretaries shall be in the unclassified civil service, except 
as provided in this subdivision:  
    (1) dentistry;  
    (2) medical examiners;  
    (3) nursing;  
    (4) pharmacy;  
    (5) accountancy; 
    (6) architecture, engineering, land surveying and landscape 
architecture;  
    (7) barber examiners;  
    (8) cosmetology;  
    (9) electricity;  
    (10) teaching; and 
    (11) peace officer standards and training.  
    The board of medical examiners shall set the salary of its 
executive secretary, which may not exceed 95 percent of the top 
of the salary range set for the commissioner of health in 
section 15A.081, subdivision 1.  At least 30 days before the 
board of medical examiners adopts a salary increase for its 
executive secretary, the board shall submit the proposed salary 
increase to the legislative commission on employee relations for 
its review.  
    The executive secretaries serving the remaining boards 
shall be hired by those boards, and shall be in the unclassified 
civil service except for part-time executive secretaries, who 
are not required to be in the unclassified service.  Boards not 
requiring a full-time executive secretary may employ such 
services on a part-time basis.  To the extent practicable the 
sharing of part-time executive secretaries by boards being 
serviced by the same department is encouraged.  Persons 
providing services to those boards not listed in this 
subdivision, except executive secretaries of the boards and 
employees of the attorney general, shall be classified civil 
service employees of the department servicing the board.  To the 
extent practicable the commissioner shall insure that staff 
services are shared by the boards being serviced by the 
department.  If necessary, a board may hire part-time, temporary 
employees to administer and grade examinations. 
    Sec. 3.  [REPEALER.] 
    Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 484.68, subdivision 6, is 
repealed.
