Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     1-32-12.   Employees' rights preserved. Any employee who was a member of any retirement system before the transfer of any board, commission, department, division, or agency specified by chapters 1-32 to 1-47, inclusive, shall not lose any retirement benefits accrued in such system by virtue of such transfer. An employee so affected shall have the option of continuing as a member of the retirement system of which he was a member at the time of transfer or to join the retirement system to which the transfer makes him eligible. However, the affected employee shall make his election within six months from the date of the transfer. Unless otherwise provided in chapters 1-32 to 1-47, inclusive, each state officer or employee affected by the reorganization of the executive department of state government under said chapters is entitled to all rights which he possessed as a state officer or employee before such reorganization, including rights to tenure in office and rank or grade, rights to vacation and sick pay and leave, rights under any retirement or personnel plan or labor union contract, rights to compensatory time earned, and any other rights under law or administrative policy. This section is not intended to create any new rights for any state officer or employee but to continue only those rights in effect before any transfer or reorganization pursuant to chapters 1-32 to 1-47, inclusive.
