State Sen. Joel Anderson’s SB 1368 would limit the annual pay of any state officer or employee to no higher than that of the governor, now set at $173,987. [Here is the text.] In announcing last week that the bill had been approved by the Senate Public Employee and Retirement Committee, Anderson's office said: “In 2011, over 9,000 state employees were earning more than the governor, above and beyond the national average for similar positions.” He cited examples such as $784,595 paid physicians and surgeons for the Department of Corrections. SB 1368 will be heard today [Tuesday] in the Senate Governmental Organization Committee. Is Anderson on the right track or going overboard?
