Compensation; term of office; impeachment.

(a) The salary of each supernumerary district attorney shall be an amount equal to $500.00 less than the salary paid by the state to supernumerary circuit judges and shall be paid as other district attorneys' salaries are now paid, for the payment of which an appropriation is hereby made. Such supernumerary district attorney shall hold office during good behavior of such supernumerary district attorney and may be removed only by impeachment for the causes specified in the Constitution of Alabama.

(b) The repeal of laws providing for supernumerary judges as provided in Section 12-17-40 shall not affect the compensation paid supernumerary district attorneys.
