AMENDMENT TO KANSAS CONSTITUTION
AFFECTING SUPREME COURT JUSTICES
AND DISTRICT COURT JUDGES (PROPOSED)
The Kansas Legislature in 1947 (Chap. 249, Laws 1947) submitted to
the voters at the next general election (November 2, 1948) a proposition
to amend Section 13 of Article 3 of our Constitution so as to read:
Sec. 13. The justices of the supreme court and judges of the district courts shall
receive for their services such compensation as may be provided by law, which law
shall become effective on the second Monday in January of the next odd-numbered
year after its enactment, and such justices or judges shall receive no fees or per-
quisites nor hold any other office of profit or trust under the authority of the
state, or the United States, nor practice law in any of the courts in the state during
their continuance in office.
This amendment, if adopted, makes two principal changes in our present
Constitution:
First, it provides that any act of the Legislature pertaining to salaries
of the justices of the Supreme Court or of judges of the District Court shall
not take effect for about two years, but that then it shall be effective as to
all members of the Supreme Court or to all judges of the District Court.
This time for an act changing such salaries to take effect corresponds
with the section of our Constitution (Sec. 15, Art. 1) pertaining to the
effective date of statutes fixing salaries of the Governor and other executive
state officers.
Under our present Constitution it is inequitable to members of the
Supreme Court, each doing the same work, for two of the justices to have
a change of salary effective in two years, others not until four years, and
others not until six years after an act fixing such salaries is passed by the
legislature.
