House Votes to Reject Alaska Compensation Commission Report


March 06, 2023

(SitNews) - On a unanimous vote today, the House passed Senate Bill 86 rejecting the recommendations of the Alaska State Officers Compensation Commission. The report, which recommends salary increases for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and executive department heads would have automatically gone into effect 60 days from its issuance barring legislative action. 

"Having just heard from our Anchorage constituents over the weekend, it is even more clear that our spending priorities should be focused first and foremost on increasing the Base Student Allocation (BSA) to a meaningful level," said Representative Zack Fields (D-Anchorage). 

"The House Coalition is encouraged to see the Legislature make quick work of rejecting this ill-timed compensation report," said Minority Leader Calvin Schrage (NP-Anchorage).
