Local reps generous with their salaries

capital buildingThe Sac Bee’s coverage of state legislators voluntarily taking pay cuts includes this helpful list. Roger Niello, Ted Gaines and Dave Cox are all taking pay cuts; Steinberg, Dave Jones, and Niello give up the per diem (Cox donates his per diem); and Cox and Niello forgo the car allowance.

This means almost all of the representatives in our area who are doing something to voluntarily lower their pay, including Assemblymembers Joan Buchanan and Alyson Huber. I know it’s kind of a silly topic — I think I’d actually be okay with raising their salaries if they could get us out of this mess — but I think that does matter.
