Legislative Priorities for Setting Salaries for Elected Officials, 2022
The League of Women Voters of New Mexico supports legislative compensation that is fair and reasonable, recognizing that there is a cost to government and that the cost should be paid by the taxpayers of New Mexico.
The League recommends:
- paying a salary that is high enough to attract and retain qualified, committed legislators;
- providing legislators with adequate legal research and office assistance;
- requiring legislative procedures and schedules to promote efficiency, transparency, accountability, and public accessibility.
