Sac Bee: “Gov. Jerry Brown and state politicians will receive a 3 percent pay hike starting in December, their fifth raise in as many years as California’s budget picture continues to improve.
The raises, approved Monday by the California Citizens Compensation Commission, come on top the 4 percent salary increases that kicked in late last year. Brown’s pay will climb from $190,102 to $195,805, while rank-and-file lawmakers will go from $104,117 to $107,240.”

“Salaries for other statewide politicians like Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Treasurer John Chiang also will rise. …
There has been broad agreement in past years, including among taxpayer advocate groups, that the governor’s salary is too low given the size of the state and the responsibilities of the post.”

Last month their AG, Becerra, requested more funds to fight Pres Trump’s executive orders. Gov Brown asked Pres Trump for more cash to fund their high speed rail. They would also have to locate an additional $200 billion a year to pay for the proposed California single payer.
