Pay Reducing Amendment
(2008-07-11)
(wgvu) - A Michigan lawmaker is pitching another
way to let voters cut legislators' pay and benefits instead of
through a sweeping constitutional amendment affecting many other
parts of state government.
Democratic House member Mark Meadows of East Lansing on Friday
proposed a constitutional amendment to reduce legislative pay to
$60,000 a year. Lawmakers now earn $79,650 annually.
The measure also would end legislative term limits that took
effect in 1992.
Similar proposals are included in a proposed November ballot
measure turned in this week to election officials. The measure is
running into resistance from Republicans and some Democrats because
it would change legislative redistricting, reshape appellate courts
and reduce the size of the Legislature.
