Senate Bill 81 seeks to set the annual salary of Georgia legislators at “an amount equal to the median annual household income for citizens of the State of Georgia.” This would currently account for a raise from $16,200 to $56,183 in annual salary, or over $1,400 per day of the 40 day session.
The bill’s chief sponsor, Valencia Seay (D, 34th), had previously pre-filed Senate Bill 13 seeking a raise to $29,908 per year.
