To repeal section 104.601, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to retirement for state employees.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 104.601, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 104.601, to read as follows:
104.601. Any member retiring pursuant to the provisions of this chapter or any member retiring pursuant to provisions of chapter 169, RSMo, who is a member of the public school retirement system and who is employed by a state agency other than an institution of higher learning, after working continuously until reaching retirement age, shall be credited with all his or her unused sick leave and unused annual leave as reported through the financial and human resources system maintained by the office of administration, or if a state agency's employees are not paid salaries or wages through such system, as reported directly by the state agency. When calculating years of service, each member shall be entitled to one-twelfth of a year of creditable service for each one hundred sixty-eight hours of unused accumulated sick leave or annual leave earned by the member. The employing agency shall not certify unused sick leave unless such unused sick leave could have been used by the member for sickness or injury. The rate of accrual of sick leave or annual leave for purposes of computing years of service pursuant to this section shall be no greater than ten hours per month. Nothing under this section shall allow a member to vest in the retirement system by using such credited sick leave or annual leave to reach the time of vesting.
