(b) For purposes of benefits accrued as an elected state official, any elected state official who retires under K.S.A. 74-4914 and amendments thereto, on or after February 1, 1989, the annuity shall be based on the final average salary of such elected state official as provided in this subsection.

For all periods of credited service during any term of office which commences after the effective date of this act, the final average salary shall be as provided in K.S.A. 74-4902 and amendments thereto.
