For State Lawmakers, Secrecy May Pay…Literally

Just in case you weren’t totally fed up with Albany yet, take a look at this most recent post from our friends at the Empire Center. The bottom line is that State Lawmakers may be in line for yet another giant pay raise…but we won’t get to know that until after the election!

That’s right – due to the Legislature punting their role in deciding pay scales to an unelected commission, they may get another pay raise starting in January 2021, but we won’t know until after the election! This political shell game is peak Albany…and another reason our government reform platform should be adopted by all candidates!

Keep this in mind when you go to the polls tomorrow and only support candidates backed by the UJP! Full list of 2020 candidates can be found here.
