Constitutional amendments to extend pay cuts to elected officials introduced

In the wake of House Bill 1115, two proposed constitutional amendments have now been introduced to also extend the 3 percent pay cuts to legislators, the governor, other statewide elected officials and judges.

If passed, either or both SJR 8202 and SJR 8203 would extend pay cuts imposed on non-elected state employees to elected state officials. If the Legislature approves either or both, voters would decide in December.

Both have been referred to the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
