HARRISBURG – The perk of annual automatic pay raises for PA state lawmakers would end under legislation being introduced. The bill’s sponsor, Luzerne County Rep. Gerald Mullery says annual pay raises are not guaranteed to many PA workers and that should be the same for the General Assembly and other elected leaders. Under House Bill 2122, the annual cost-of-living adjustment in the Public Official Compensation Law of 1983 would be repealed. It would apply to members of the General Assembly, judges throughout the state, the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, treasurer, auditor general, and agency heads in PA’s executive branch. The bill is before the House State Government Committee for consideration.
