Commission backtracks, says no to pay cut for Alaska legislators

An independent commission reversed itself Tuesday and decided not to advance a plan to cut Alaska legislators' $50,400 salaries by 10 percent.

The State Officers Compensation Commission voted 2-2 on the proposal, which would have sliced legislative salaries to $45,360; the recently appointed fifth member of the commission, Mike Miller of North Pole, was absent.

The tie vote means the proposal will not move forward, said Kate Sheehan, who works with the commission in her job as state personnel director.

The commission, in October, initially proposed to slash both legislators' compensation and their daily expense checks, known as per diem. The commission's original plan could have cost each legislator more than $20,000 a year.
