Our job is to set the salaries of the elected officials in the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of state government including: 

 

Our salary setting process is thoughtful, non-political, objective, and meets the intent of the constitutional amendment that created us.

 

During the 1986 session, the Legislature approved a bill to implement the Commission on January 1, 1987, subject to voter approval of a proposed constitutional amendment. House Joint Resolution 49, the 78th amendment to the Constitution passed at the November 4, 1986, general election. That measure removed the salary setting function from the Legislature and placed it in the hands of an independent citizen commission.
