Legislature pay

Also, if you want proof Establishment Republicans are completely out of touch...

The salary for a Texas State Senator is $7200/yr. This was last updated in 1975, back when the legislature might have actually still been truly part-time. If you want to know why no young people want the job, a big reason is the same as any other job: It doesn't pay enough. In this case, not even enough to live under a bridge. No wonder all our politicians jump straight into the arms of those big donors.

Pay State Senators and House Reps an honest wage.
