New York State Assembly Salaries
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - All New York state legislators are paid the same base salary of $79, 500 for the part-time job.
But most make more than that. They can add to the base:
- "Lulus, " or extra pay for committee assignments.
- $172 per diem payments to cover food and Albany lodging during session, plus reimbursements for transportation.
- Double dipping: Pension payments for those who have reached age 65, filed for retirement and returned to work.
And the top lawmakers are really getting as much as $205, 000 in government money.
We asked New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli's staff for records of each source of income for each legislator and added them together.
You can search our database to see how much each legislator is taking home from Albany.
Sen. John DeFrancisco, R-Syracuse, tops the list of Central New York legislators. In fact, he ranks 4th in the state for salary plus "lulus" because he is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. In 2014, he made $113, 500 with lulus and another $10, 508 for travel expenses.
