Decouple GA Compensation From Judges' Compensation

Concerning the decoupling of the compensation of a member of the general assembly from the compensation of a county court judge.
2017 Regular Session
State Government
Bill Summary

Members of the general assembly currently receive an annual salary of $30,000. For terms commencing on or after 2019, current law provides that the salary will be an amount equal to 25% of the total annual salary paid to the judges of the county court in a Class B county.

For terms commencing on or after 2019 but prior to 2025, the bill establishes the salary for members of the general assembly at 25% of the amount of the total annual salary paid to judges of the county court in a Class B county as established in the 2016 long bill. (The 2016 long bill established the judges' salary at $152,466. Twenty-five percent of this amount would be $38,116.) Starting in 2025, the director of research of the legislative council would adjust this salary amount for inflation from 2019 through 2025, and then adjust the amount again every 2 years thereafter.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
