  Code, are amended to read as follows:
         (a)  Each bailiff appointed under Section 53.002(c) shall be
  paid an annual salary out of the general fund of El Paso County,
  unless another source of funding is approved by the commissioners
  court.  The council of judges shall set the salary in writing
  consistent with pay scales adopted by the commissioners court that
  are comparable to other positions within El Paso County. [The
  appointing judge shall set the salary in writing, but except as
  otherwise provided by this section, the annual salary shall be set
  at $18,000 on August 26, 1985, and thereafter the $18,000 annual
  salary shall increase as provided by Subsection (c).]
         (b)  Bailiffs appointed under Section 53.002(c) who held
  office as bailiffs under that section [Chapter 817, Acts of the 62nd
  Legislature, Regular Session, 1971 (Article 2292l, Vernon's Texas
  Civil Statutes), or under Chapter 532, Acts of the 67th
  Legislature, Regular Session, 1981 (Article 2292o, Vernon's Texas
  Civil Statutes),] on June 30, 2017 [August 25, 1985], are entitled
  to receive at least the same annual salary or compensation under
  this section as they received [under those Acts] on that date 
  [August 26, 1985].
         (d)  A person appointed to succeed a bailiff who held office
  as bailiff under Section 53.002(c) [Chapter 817, Acts of the 62nd
  Legislature, Regular Session, 1971 (Article 2292l, Vernon's Texas
  Civil Statutes), or under Chapter 532, Acts of the 67th
  Legislature, Regular Session, 1981 (Article 2292o, Vernon's Texas
  Civil Statutes),] is not entitled to be paid the same annual salary
  paid to the bailiff the person [he] succeeds, but is entitled to
  receive an annual salary as provided by Subsection (a) [the annual
  salary as provided by this section so that the bailiffs' salaries
  under this section will become uniform with the passage of time. A
  person appointed to succeed any bailiff before October 1, 1986, is
  entitled to the $18,000 annual salary set by Subsection (a). A
  person appointed to succeed any bailiff on or after October 1, 1986,
  is entitled to the $18,000 annual salary set by Subsection (a) or
  the salary set on the date the bailiff is appointed for a Grade 20 of
  the El Paso County Job Guide Designation for a new employee under
  Grade 20, whichever is greater. A bailiff whose annual salary is
  set on September 30, 1986, at $18,000 under this section is on
  October 1, 1986, entitled to any salary increase provided for under
  Subsection (c) or the salary set on October 1, 1986, for a Grade 20
  of the El Paso County Job Guide Designation for a new employee under
  Grade 20, whichever is greater. After October 1, 1986, all salary
  increases for bailiffs shall be uniform as provided for in
  Subsection (c). If a substantial number of those job titles or
  positions listed on the effective date of this section under Grade
  20 of the El Paso County Job Guide Designation are removed from
  Grade 20 or the El Paso County Job Guide Designation is replaced
  with some other system for setting employees' salaries under those
  job titles or positions listed under Grade 20 of the El Paso County
  Job Guide Designation, on the date a new bailiff is appointed, the
  starting salary being paid at that time by El Paso County to the
  functional equivalent of Grade 20 of the El Paso County Job Guide
  Designation shall be used in place of Grade 20. In determining the
  functional equivalent of Grade 20 under this section, the job
  titles, positions, or their equivalent listed under Grade 20 on
  August 26, 1985, shall be considered as the only factors].
         SECTION 2.  Sections 53.0091(c) and (e), Government Code,
  are repealed.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2017.
