Commissioners to get pay cut, too

JFAC has taken formal action this morning to apply the 3 percent across-the-board state pay cut to state tax commissioners, industrial commissioners and public utilities commissioners. The commissioners' pay is set by state law, but the joint budget committee unanimously adopted "notwithstanding" language, setting aside the legally set salaries to accommodate the pay cuts. It's the same percentage cut that will apply to all state employees, except elected officials whose pay can't be changed during their term in office.
