PA officials to receive annual pay bump

Written by The Associated Press | Nov 25, 2013 11:52 AM

(Harrisburg) -- State lawmakers, judges and top executive branch officials, including Governor Corbett, will see a few hundred dollars more in salary in 2014, unless they decline it. 

The increase is just 0.3 percent, smaller than most other years because of the region's sluggish inflation. 

The bump takes effect December 1st for lawmakers and January 1st for judges and top executive branch officials. 

The salary range for lawmakers starts at $84,000, up to $131,000 for the House speaker and Senate president pro tempore.

The Supreme Court's chief justice will be paid $206,000, common pleas judges about $174,000 and district judges about $87,000. 

Corbett will be paid almost $188,000, although his office says he only takes the $175,000 salary set for the governor back when he was elected in 2010.

    I would like to know if anything is being done regarding Representative Mark Cohen lining his pockets unnecessarily with tens of thousands of additional taxpayer dollars on an annual basis?
