Panel Reviewing Salaries Of Arkansas Officials' To Meet

Jan 14, 2015

The Arkansas panel reviewing elected officials' salaries will soon meet for the first time since the Legislature convened for this year's session.

The Independent Citizens Commission will meet Wednesday morning in Little Rock, the first of two meetings this week.

The commission is expected to hear from several witnesses, including the state budget administrator and two judges.

The seven-member panel was created through a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year. It will eventually adjust salaries for Arkansas legislators, constitutional officers and judges. The panel faces a Feb. 2 deadline to complete its initial review of officials' salaries.
