21    Comptroller by a personnel transaction used as  a  subterfuge
22    for  discharge  may,  within 15 calendar days after the final
23    decision of the Director of  Personnel  on  the  transaction,
24    appeal  in  writing to the Commission. The appeal must allege

26    facie  case  that  the  employee  was  in  effect  discharged
27    contrary to and in violation of the requirements of Section 9
28    of this Act.  Any appeal which fails to allege sufficient and
29    specific  facts  to  support  the allegation may be summarily
30    dismissed by the Commission.  The Commission in due  exercise
31    of  its  discretion may make its decision on the appeal after

 6    employees from timely asserting other rights  given  to  them
 7    under this Act.

 8    this   Act,   based  upon  similarity  of  duties  performed,
 9    responsibilities assigned, and conditions  of  employment  so

28    in rank or grade by reallocation because of a loss of  duties
29    or   responsibilities   after   their  appointments  to  such
30    positions, prevailing rates of wages in those classifications
31    in which employers are now paying or may hereafter  pay  such
32    rates  of  wage  and  other  provisions.  Such pay plan shall
33    become effective only after  it  has  been  approved  by  the
34    Comptroller.   Amendments to the pay plan will be made in the

19    request with a list and a brief description of the records to
20    be destroyed. A copy of  this  list  shall  be  sent  to  the
21    Secretary  of  State  before  any  records are destroyed. The

23    whether  any of the records which the Comptroller proposes to
24    destroy are of unusual historic value. If  the  Secretary  of

26    historic value,  he  shall  inform  the  Comptroller  of  his
27    determination,  and the Comptroller shall deposit such record
28    in the State Archives rather than destroy them.

31    thereafter be destroyed, but warrants must be  reproduced  as
