Current Bill Summary

SJR 32 - Currently, the General Assembly may appropriate periodic uniform cost-of-living adjustments for all employees of the state and such adjustments may also be extended to statewide elected officials, judges, and members of the General Assembly. This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, provides that if the General Assembly appropriates such adjustments, as well as uniform increases in compensation, for all employees of the state, then such adjustments and increases shall also be extended to such elected officials and judges.

This proposed amendment is similar to SJR 18 (2017).
