AUTHORIZING THE COMPTROLLER GENERAL TO EXCUSE COUNTY AUDITORS AND TREASURERS FROM CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR REASONS OF RETIREMENT, LEAVING OFFICE, OR OTHER REASONABLE CAUSE.
Whereas, in Act 444 of 1990, the General Assembly mandated annual continuing education requirements for county auditors and treasurers; and
Whereas, the Comptroller General was given authority to excuse auditors and treasurers from attendance only in cases of death in the immediate family or the illness as certified by a doctor; and
Whereas, remedial legislation is pending to establish a fairer and more workable attendance policy for mandatory continuing education requirements for auditors and treasurers; and
Whereas, a number of auditors and treasurers are leaving office in June, 1991, and no valid public interest is served by these officials being required to attend mandatory continuing education requirements in April, 1991. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the Comptroller General is authorized to excuse county auditors and treasurers from the mandatory continuing education requirements imposed pursuant to Act 444 of 1990, for reason of retirement, leaving office, or other reasonable cause.
