 6    it shall also pay  the  employee  contributions  required  of
 7    regional  superintendents  of  schools and assistant regional
 8    superintendents of schools on the same basis,  but  excluding
 9    any  contributions  based on compensation that is paid by the
10    county rather than the State.
