Pennsylvania lawmakers will see a record bump in their paychecks starting Wednesday.
That’s when the automatic pay raise kicks in. It will boost the monthly pay of the state’s rank-and-file lawmakers to around $7,950. That pushes their yearly salary to $95,432, up from the $90,335 that it has been for this year and last.
Lawmakers who hold elected caucus leadership posts will earn more. Their salaries will range from $108,819 for the House and Senate minority and majority caucus administrators up through $148,976 for House Speaker Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster County, and Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Centre County.
