Text of measure
The text of the ballot read:
|“||Recommendation of the Commission on Salaries for Elected State Officers as to legislative salaries have been certified to the Secretary of State and are hereby submitted to the qualified electors for their approval or rejection.
The Statement of recommendation from the Commission on Salaries for Elective State Officers read as follows:
Recommended Legislative Salary - $19,750
The Commission believes the current method of establishing legislative salaries is not working. Thus, we recommend a constitutional amendment changing the present system. We suggest that the language of the amendment be determined by the Legislature, after adequate public hearings, and be submitted to the voters in 1994. In addition, each legislator should receive a minimum of $1,000 for communication with constituents. The Commission also recommends that the Legislature consider the advisability of establishing the principle that state-wide elected officers who earn substantial salaries be prohibited from taking additional paid employment. We have included a spread sheet which shows the recommendations of the Commission since 1971. This shows the amounts recommended by the Commission and the amounts actually implemented by the Legislature from 1971 through 1993. We have appreciated our appointments and enjoyed serving this great state. Thank you very much.
