2019 Legislator Compensation


Each year, NCSL collects data from all 50 states on legislative salaries and per diems. This year, NCSL conducted a broader survey to learn more about additional compensation for legislative leaders, insurance and retirement benefits, and office and staffing allowances in additional to regular compensation. The tables linked to below provide nationwide data for each of these categories.
