(This amendment increases the salary for all Senators and Delegates by $15,000 per year, with the exception of the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, and the Majority and Minority Leaders of the House of Delegates and the Senate, for whom the salary is increased by $21,000. This amendment is contingent upon final adoption of Senate Bill, 103, substitute, as enrolled. This bill would eliminate the separate office expense allowance, requiring that such expenses be paid from the annual salary, and would increase the salary by the amount of the office expense allowance. The intent of this legislation is that the salary would be deemed "creditable compensation" for purposes of determining a members' retirement and other benefits.)
