Pay raise for PA politicians kicks in Dec. 1

Christmas comes early for members of the Pennsylvania Legislature, already among the highest paid "public servants" in the United States.

An annual automatic cost-of-living increase kicks in Dec. 1 for state lawmakers, judges and other elected officials.

From The Associated Press:
Pennsylvania's legislators, judges and top state officials are about to get automatic pay raises of 1.7 percent. Newly elected and returning legislators will get their raises starting Dec. 1, officials said Monday.

The annual salaries for rank-and-file legislators will increase from $78,315 to $79,623. Salaries for legislative floor leaders will rise from $113,468 to $115,364.
