MILITARY AND VETERANS CODE
SECTION 320-328



320.  Officers and warrant officers on active duty in the service of
the State shall receive the same pay and allowances as officers of
similar grade in the United States Army, United States Air Force and
United States Navy. All full time active duty heretofore or hereafter
performed in the service of the State shall be credited for purposes
of determining longevity and service within the provisions of this
section and Section 340 of this code.



321.  Enlisted men and women, while on active duty in the service of
the state, shall receive the same pay and allowances as enlisted men
and women of similar grade in the United States Army, United States
Air Force, and United States Navy, except that enlisted men and women
in the pay grade of E1 through E4 ordered to active duty pursuant to
Section 143 or 146, while on active duty, shall receive not less
than the minimum daily rate of pay applicable to a pay grade of E5 in
the active military service of the United States. It is the intent
of the Legislature that the foregoing minimum payments to enlisted
men and women in the pay grade of E1 through E4 may be paid from the
State Emergency Fund when, in the judgment of the Director of
Finance, there is a case of actual necessity for which no
appropriation has been made. All full-time active duty previously or
hereafter performed in the service of the state shall be credited for
purposes of determining longevity and service within the provisions
of this section and Section 340.



322.  Officers, warrant officers, and enlisted men and women on

detailed for special duty in any matter relating to the National
Guard or Naval Militia, by order of the Governor, that officer shall
be allowed the same pay and allowances as officers of similar grade
in the United States Army and United States Navy and actual traveling
expenses. An enlisted man or woman similarly detailed shall be
allowed the same pay and allowances as enlisted men and women of
similar grade in the United States Army and United States Navy and
actual traveling expenses, except that family allowances shall not be

special duty without expense to the state, except and provided,
however, the officer may be paid actual traveling expenses. An
officer of the National Guard or Naval Militia may, with his or her
consent, be detailed for duty and may be paid compensation in a grade

   If not inconsistent with the performance of required military
duty, members of the National Guard may perform emergency services as
defined in Section 18531 of the Government Code, and as provided in

near the place of performance.

States Army or United States Navy or United States Air Force,

or the Department of the Air Force for service with the National
Guard or Naval Militia, is detailed by the Governor for special duty
or requested to perform any duty involving travel not specially

security section which the Adjutant General is hereby authorized to
maintain in his or her office. A commissioned officer, warrant
officer or enlisted man or woman who is detailed for duty as provided
in this section may be paid compensation in any grade or rank lower
than the person actually holds provided the commissioned officer,
warrant officer or enlisted man or woman voluntarily waives all
compensation in excess of the lower grade or rank.
