It looks like the Senate committee assignments have been made and published. Does anyone know how long it usually takes before the House announces committee assignments? It looks like the House will be ‘working’ today, but the Senate is done for the next 2 weeks.

House: Recessed until Wed, Jan 27, 2021 10:00 am
Senate: Adjourned until Tue, Feb 9, 2021 3:00 pm

they sure to have OFF a large amount of days.

maybe instead of term limits, we should get law that states to amortize their salary by the hour, and they only get paid the hourly rate when they are actually in session at the capitol or working from their DC office. if they want o come home and campaign, take leave

Two weeks off? Didn't they just go into session? Good grief.

This is the 87th Legislature of Texas. While many of them have designs on DC, they don't have DC offices... yet. ;)

As the old saying goes, "The Texas legislature meets for 140 days every two years, and it's a shame it's not the other way around."

I'm more of a fool, though: I'm an elected NH State Representative, for a whopping $100 a year.

And I bet they did not rig the system like they did in Texas. Allowing a larger per diem ($221) when they are in session or in the office on business (even if they live in the Austin area) and making their pension based on a district judge's salary instead of their own.

Nope, we only get mileage for days we actually attend. No per diem (NM legislators don't have a salary, but they get mileage and per diem).

No pension, either: we're not state employees. Legislators are eligible to join the state employees health insurance plan, but few do. Changing healthcare plans is a huge pain for anyone.

We're trying to focus on the former. But, as Gen. Stark said in the full quote, "...death is not the worst of evils."
