  salary increases to state officers

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. (a) On the first of April of every fourth year, commencing
April 1, 2010, there shall be established for such year a commission  on
judicial compensation to examine, evaluate and make recommendations with
respect  to  adequate levels of compensation and non-salary benefits for
judges and justices of  the  state-paid  courts  of  the  unified  court
system.   In accordance with the provisions of this section, the commis-
sion shall:
  (i) examine the prevailing adequacy of pay levels and non-salary bene-
fits received by the judges and justices of the state-paid courts of the
unified court system and  determine  whether  any  of  such  pay  levels
warrant adjustment; and
  (ii)  determine  whether, for any of the four years following the year
in which the commission is established,  the  annual  salaries  for  the
judges and justices of the state-paid courts of the unified court system
warrant adjustment.
  In  discharging  its responsibilities under paragraphs (i) and (ii) of
this subdivision, the commission shall take into account all appropriate
factors including, but not limited to:  the  overall  economic  climate;
rates  of  inflation;  changes  in public-sector spending; the levels of
compensation and  non-salary  benefits  received  by  judges,  executive
branch  officials  and  legislators  of  other states and of the federal
government; the levels of compensation and non-salary benefits  received
by  professionals  in  government,  academia  and  private and nonprofit
