Short description: 
CNTY CD-STATES ATTORNY-SUBSIDY                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Counties Code.  Provides that the State subsidies  for      
   the  salaries  of  assistant  State's  attorneys  must  be paid to the      
   counties on a monthly basis (rather than on an annual basis). Provides      
   that the amount  appropriated for the subsidies must be  segregated by      
   county population  classification.  Provides that if the appropriation      
   is  insufficient to pay all of the subsidies,  the amount appropriated      
   must first  be prorated among  the different  classes of  counties and      
   then  among the  counties  participating  within  each  classification      
   (rather   than   having  the  amounts   prorated  among  the  counties      
   participating).   Provides  that  if  any  appropriated  moneys  for a      
   population  classification  remain at the  end of a  fiscal year,  the      
   remainder may be  allocated  to participating  counties that  were not      
   fully funded during the course of the year.  Allows 2 or more  State's      
   attorneys to combine their subsidies and to  appoint a joint assistant      
   State's  attorney to  prosecute  alcohol-related  traffic  offenses in      
   multiple counties.
