The General Assembly Compensation Commission was authorized in 1970 by Constitutional amendment (Chapter 576, Acts of 1970, ratified November 3, 1970). Every four years, the Commission reviews and proposes any changes to the compensation and allowances due members of the General Assembly. The Legislature may reduce but not increase the amounts proposed.
For the period 2010 through 2014, the annual salary of a legislator is $43,500. The 2010 salary for the Senate President and the House Speaker is $56,500.
The Commission reported to the General Assembly in January 2014 with salary recommendations for the legislative terms from 2015 through 2018.
The Commission consists of nine members who serve four-year terms. Five members are appointed by the Governor, two by the Senate President, and two by the House Speaker. Officers and employees of the State or local governments are not eligible for appointment (Const., Art. III, sec. 15).
