(705 ILCS 70/4.1) (from Ch. 37, par. 654.1)
    Sec. 4.1. Appointment and salary of administrative personnel.
    (a) The employer representative may authorize the chief judge of any circuit to appoint administrative, supervisory, and clerical staff when a need for such positions has been substantiated, except that in Cook County, supervisory and administrative personnel shall be appointed from among the court reporting services' pool of employees when such a need has been substantiated.
    (b) Administrative personnel appointed under this Section shall be paid by the State.
        (1) In addition to their regular salary as official
court reporters, the administrative personnel appointed under this Section shall be paid such additional sums as the employer representative specifies. Such sums shall be included in the pay schedule adopted pursuant to Section 8. The additional amounts paid shall reflect the burden of administrative responsibility borne by the administrative personnel and the consequent lack of opportunity to produce transcripts of testimony. The additional amounts paid to such personnel shall be determined by the employer representative.
        (2) Each of the administrative, supervisory, and
other support staff authorized under this Section shall be paid a salary as determined per year by the employer representative.
