The compensation of state executive officers is most often determined either by a state's constitution or statute. In some states, especially with less prominent offices, a state's department of personnel or administration will establish a compensation scheme. Most often, the salary portion of an officer's compensation is defined by law, but additional benefits (insurance, official residence, other work-related equipment) may be established by state agencies, custom, or other factors. In some cases, salaries are automatically increased each year either at the rate of inflation or by some other percentage chosen by the legislature. For example, the salary of Kentucky's governor was set at $45,000 in 1979, but has since automatically increased every year in line with inflation to its current level of $145,885.

The highest paid state executive officer is the Mississippi Superintendent of Education, who received a salary of $276,000 in 2012. The lowest paid officer in 2012 was the Lieutenant Governor of Texas, with a salary of only $7,200; the lieutenant governor receives additional compensation in his capacity as president of the Texas Senate. On average, the highest state executive salaries are paid in the eastern U.S., followed by the south. Nationally, the highest paid office on average is state superintendent of schools/education commissioner, with an average salary of $156,537. The next highest compensated office is governor. Additional analysis and comparisons are provided at the bottom of this page.

This page provides an overview of the salaries (not necessarily total compensation) received by the state executive officers Ballotpedia covers. The data source is the 2010 and 2012 Book of the States, a compilation of information collected by the Council of State Governments, a non-profit organization sponsored by state governments. Offices covered include:

2013 changes by office

According to the Council of State Governments annual report on gubernatorial salaries, in 2013, governors in eight states - Idaho, Indiana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Tennessee - will be paid more than the previous year. Compared to 2012's survey results from these states, that is an average raise of $4,115 or 3.2%.[1]

2013 changes by state

So far in 2013, salary changes have been reported in the following states:

  • South Carolina:
Beginning in 2013, the South Carolina Director of Insurance will receive an annual salary of $130,000.[2] This is a 15.6% increase from 2012, when the director was paid $112,407 according to the Council of State Governments.[3]
  • North Carolina:
Beginning in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, ten state executive officials - Lieutenant Governor,

Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, State Auditor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Agriculture Commissioner, Insurance Commissioner, Natural Resources Secretary, and Labor Commissioner - are paid 1.2% more than the previous year, bringing their annual salaries up to $124,676, with the exception of the Energy and Natural Resources Secretary, whose salary has increased to $128,000.[4]. The changes are due to the North Carolina General Assembly's passage of House Bill 950 in July 2012. Republican state legislators changed state law to allow the governor to set cabinet member salaries.

Explaining the raises, McCrory said, "I'm trying to make it at least where they can afford to live while running multi-billion departments."[5]

Changes from 2010

Only six states saw no salary changes from 2010 to 2012: Arizona, Idaho, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Wyoming. 25 states saw decreases in salary in at least one position. Of those, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Washington saw only salary decreases with no position getting a pay increase. The rest had increases of some kind in at least one position.

Average salaries by region

The chart below displays an overview of the average salary of each type of state executive officer by region. The regions are: East[6], Midwest[7], South[8], and West[9]. Executive officers are best paid in the eastern U.S., with a mean wage of $118,350 across all offices.

Salaries of other state executive officers

The salaries of other state executive offices are displayed below. The offices include: treasurer, controller/comptroller, auditor, agriculture commissioner, labor commissioner, insurance commissioner, superintendent of schools, natural resources commissioner, and public services commission.

For instance, the Florida Chief Financial Officer, the state's equivalent of treasurer and controller, is an elected member of the governor's cabinet.
