Maryland lawmakers get 15% pay raise and didn’t have to vote for it

For many lawmakers, it is a full time job

Republicans in the State House of Maryland rejected a commission’s recommendation to raise the pay of Maryland legislators from $43,500 to $50,330.

The pay hike was not put to a vote.

“All the taxes that have been levied on families, they are having a tough time making ends meet, so we don’t think it is appropriate for legislators to get a raise at this current time the way the economy is,” House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga said.

The raise comes on top of a new budget that raises taxes for Marylanders.

California lawmakers make an astonishing $90,000 a year.
