Legislation that would eliminate automatic cost-of-living adjustments, or COLAs, for various public officials has been introduced.
State Rep. Patty Kim, a Democrat from Dauphin County, is sponsoring the bill along with Rep. Gerald Mullery, a Democrat from Luzerne County and Kim says the median household income of a Pennsylvania family is $51,000 and that’s the figure she’s working on increasing, not the annual salaries of public officials.
The bill (H.B. 1035) would apply to members of the General Assembly, the governor and lieutenant governor, those elected to the state row offices, and secretaries of state agencies. Various judges, including Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices and district justices, also would be included under the measure.
Kim added the bill would repeal the 1983 law providing for annual COLAs for certain Pennsylvania public officials.
The bill has been referred to the House State Government Committee for review.
