The Compensation Council, a 16-member panel representing all three branches of state government, is recommending the first salary hikes for Minnesota's government leaders in more than a decade, the Associated Press reports.
If approved, the governor's annual base pay of $120,303 would go up 3 percent in 2015 and again in 2016. The governor's last pay boost was in 1998.
Legislators would earn $40,890 or one-third of what the governor makes, starting in 2015. That's up from $31,140 -- unchanged since 1999.
Both state lawmakers and the governor would have to approve any and all recommendations.
