                 Act of Dec. 16, 1982, P.L. 1354, No. 309             Cl. 65
                                  AN ACT

     Relating to the resignation and reappointment of public

        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  Any public officer within the meaning of such
     term as used in Article III, section 27, of the Constitution of
     the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania who resigns from office shall
     be ineligible for reappointment to that office during the
     remainder of the term for which he was appointed or for a period
     of one year, whichever is less, if such reappointment would
     increase his salary or emoluments. However, nothing contained in
     this act shall prevent such an officer from being reappointed to
     the same office from which he resigned if such reappointment
     does not result in a higher salary obtaining than such person
     received at the date of his resignation.
        Section 2.  This act shall take effect immediately.
