In New York State, all Legislators (Assemblymen and Senators alike) receive the same salary of $79,500, because these elected positions are viewed as part-time. As a result, many NYS Legislators look for outside income. Critics believe this sets the stage for graft, and recommend reframing these positions as full-time, with a respective increase in compensation, and a limit on outside income. Would you support changing elected NYS officials to full-time, with increased compensation and a cap on outside income?
