|Subject:||Legislation Limiting a Legislator’s Outside Income (HB 2278 of 2016)|
In the near future, I intend to re-introduce legislation (HB 2278 of 2016) amending Act 39 (The Public Official Compensation Law) to limit the salary members of the General Assembly may receive for services rendered outside of their duties as a legislator.
This bill would prohibit members of the General Assembly from receiving more than 35% of their base salary as a member of the General Assembly in salary for services rendered outside of the salary and allowances for his or her office. After meeting with members of the Government Reform Caucus last session, this language was drafted to clearly specify the type of income I was seeking to limit for legislators to SALARY FOR SERVICES RENDERED outside the base salary and allowances of a member of the General Assembly.
We are a fulltime legislature being paid for fulltime service. Influences and time demands from outside employment do nothing to further our mission of serving our constituents. Please join me in supporting this legislation.
Introduced as HB948
