Seeking copies of handouts at today’s meeting of the independent commission reviewing state official pay, I learned from Richard Wilson of the Bureau of Legislative Research that the commission now has a website.

It includes, in addition to information about meetings and commissioners, many of the handouts distributed at the meeting. The Bureau has been compiling data about state pay and benefits and data from other states to help the commission decide whether legislators, state officials and judges deserve a pay raise and, if so, how much.
