Oppose Legislative Payraises
As their first official action for the 2017-2018 legislative session, the House and Senate voted to increase their own pay by an enormous amount, roughly 40%, on top of a 4% increase received at the end of 2016.
In a near party line vote with a few Democratic defections, the pay raise bills passed with margins capable of overriding a gubernatorial veto. While there were other roll calls that day and we’ll be updating this page, you can see the final House Roll Call and Senate Roll Call here.
Also, check out this letter written by several conservative Republicans in opposition to this action. They deserve our thanks for taking the lead against this outrage.
