4. Each salary adjustment [approved] authorized pursuant to this section for offices that have a statutory salary shall be added to the compensation otherwise provided by law for each office if such, including prior salary adjustments made pursuant to this section, and the sum of these amounts shall be the statutory salary of the office for all purposes. Each such statutory salary shall be included in the pertinent appropriation bill in the same manner as any other personal service appropriation involving a statutory salary.
