I'm not 100% sure what they make this session, but 3 or 4 years ago, it was $130,000 a year for members of the Assembly. Opportunities to make side money aren't there the way they used to be. I have a friend from school who served two terms, and he privately complained about the income.

Yeah, if they do not like the pay, then why do they run for office???
Our county supervisors just voted themselves a 60% raise! Despite very vocal complaints about it, they completed the deal earlier this month. They knew what the pay was before they ran for office, so they should have to live with it. But no...
In the meantime, all other county employee's had to live with pay-raise freeze's, lay-offs, cuts to their pension benefits, and hiring freeze's.
That's why they're politicians, they can get away with it...
