Letter of the Day (April 21): Legislators' pay

  • April 20, 2013 - 5:02 PM

The part-time Legislature seems to feel it deserves full-time compensation (“Senate: Time to raise pay for lawmakers,” April 16). This is nearly the same group that decided to finance a new Vikings stadium based on faulty information provided by an interest group with the most to gain from their ultimate decision. Rather than cash, I suggest the taxpayers compensate these elective officials with electronic pulltab credits. However, based on the performance of those, I’m sure the legislators would insist on paper tabs.
