The law provides a salary increase, effective January 7, 1987 for the members of the legislature and certain constitutional officers of the Commonwealth.

Thereafter the salaries of each member of the lelgislature will be increased by the same percentages as the salaries of full time state employees subject to the collective bargaining agreements. The law further provides that members of the legislature holding leadership positions and committee chairmanships will receive an annual sum in addition to their salary. This additional amount will vary from $7,500 to $35,000 depending upon the particular position the member holds. The law also increases the salaries of certain constitutional officers. Under the law the salary of the governor is set at $85,000; the salaries of the lieutenant governor, state secretary, state treasurer and the state auditor are set at $70,000; and the salary of the attorney general is set at $75,000. Any individual may waive his or her salary increase under this law. Any amount so waived shall not be deemed regular compensation for the purposes of computing any such person's benefits and shall be exempt from state taxation.

The proposed law would not change the way wages are set for laborers employed by the state Department of Public Works and the Metropolitan Distsrict Commission.
