Following the paychecks

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 2:10 PM

Governor's office appropriation filed today. In light of the reader screaming about pay raises over on Channel 11's story about the legislature's vote to increase legislative, executive and judicial pay by 3.8 percent, I thought it might be of interest.

At the high end, 11 people, not counting the governor, authorized to make from $89,000 to $117,879 for chief of staff Morril Harriman. Sounds high to some. But together, it's barely enough to hire a good offensive and defensive coordinator.

ALSO: You might want to check John Williams Legislative Beat for more legislative ephemera -- a tribute to an energy company for using Arkansas to further enrich itself and a report on Rep. Donna Hutchinson's upskirt photography bill. Did she really say there's been a rash of teen boys sneaking into the girls' lockerrroms to snap naughty cellphone photos? What kind of schools are they running up in NWA anyway?
