State legislators getting raise: $45K a year

The Legislative Salary Council has voted to increase the base pay for legislators from $31,141 per year to $45,000 per year starting in July.

Brian Bakst of Minnesota Public Radio:

The vote was 13-1, with the sole dissenter saying the jump is too steep, considering lawmakers will continue to qualify for daily expense allowances. The council didn’t have power to raise or lower those.
