Don’t Hike Pay for Legislators, Raise the People’s Pay

By SENATOR TIM KENNEDY

It’s time for lawmakers to go on the record on pay raises. Over the last several weeks and months, I’ve made it clear I am opposed to pay hikes for state legislators. Now, I urge my colleagues to join me in working to restore the public’s trust, rather than moving forward with their ill-conceived money grab.

With our economy now pressing forward along the road to recovery, lawmakers should be focused on economic issues and getting people back to work, not on bigger paychecks for themselves.
