Pay raise commission for NY lawmakers

Albany, N.Y. — The New York State Assembly voted in a pay raise commission for the Legislature as part of their budget bill.
This pay raise commission will be comprised of seven appointed members. The governor’s office will appoint three, the courts would appoint two, and the State Senate and State Assembly would each appoint one.
Lee Perfitt of Oakfield said, “I think they make way too much. I think it should go more towards the people and everybody else make around the same wage.”
Brian Steklof of Brighton said, “It’s technically considered a part time job so they actually all have other businesses. So you don’t even know their outside income, and most of them make well into six figures.”
Currently, the base salary for state legislators is $79,500 per year.
The pay raise commission will examine if raises are needed for lawmakers, judges, state office holders, among others.
“This removes the politics from it,” Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle (D-Irondequoit) said. “It certainly doesn’t guarantee if there is going to be an increase in compensation for anyone.”
“I said I wouldn’t vote for a pay raise and this is a way of voting for a backdoor pay raise and I couldn’t do it,” Assemblyman Mark Johns (R-Perinton) said.
The first recommendations are expected by the fall of 2016, which means lawmakers could see raises as early as January 2017.
