§7-7-19. Compliance with Economic Stabilization Act of 1970.
Nothing herein contained shall be construed to permit the
compensation of the judge of any statutory court, officer or
employee to be in excess of the amount (taking into consideration
the compensation he now receives as supplemental compensation from
any county, county court, or other political subdivision) which can
be paid under the rules and regulations of the pay board
established by the president of the United States by virtue of the
authority vested in him by the Economic Stabilization Act of 1970,
as from time to time amended; nor shall this section be construed
to permit the annual salary of such judge, officer or employee to
be reduced to a sum below that which he was being paid by the state
of West Virginia and any county, county court, or other political
subdivision on June thirty, one thousand nine hundred seventy-two.
