Hawaii commission endorses pay raises for elected officials

HONOLULU — Hawaii’s state legislators should receive a series of annual pay raises beginning in 2021, according to recommendations by the state Commission on Salaries.

The House speaker and Senate president support the commission’s proposal to boost legislators’ pay by 10 percent in 2021, with additional increases through 2024, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday.

The raises would cost the state more than $485,000 in the next fiscal year and increase each year to 2024.

Under the plan, 74 members of the state House and Senate would receive increases from their current annual pay of $62,604 up to $74,160 in 2024, the newspaper reported.
