Gibbons Signs Sheriff Pay Bill

Missouri Senate leader Mike Gibbons signed legislation in Camdenton Wednesday that will boost pay for Deputy Sheriffs.

The legislation allows Sheriff offices around the state to receive an additional $10 fee for processing civil summonses, writs, subpoenas or other court orders. The money for
House Bill 2224 will go to the newly created “Deputy Sheriff Salary Supplementation Fund,” which will be used to bolster the pay of county deputy sheriffs.

As Senate President Pro Tem, Sen. Gibbons signs legislation passed by both houses of the General Assembly. The governor then considers whether to place these bills into effect.

Gibbons is the presumptive Republican nominee for Attorney General.
