So far the House of the Pennsylvania legislature has met 70 days this year where 7 of those days were non-voting.
Below is a list of days certain committees of interest were in session.
AGING AND OLDER ADULT SERVICES Committee met for four days.
ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES AND ENERGY Committee met for fourteen days.
FINANCE Committee met for ten days.
HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Committee met for eight days.
LIQUOR CONTROL Committee met for four days.
VETERANS AFFAIRS AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Committee met for eight days.
TRANSPORTATION Committee met for four days.
And the INSURANCE Committee did not meet for 2008.
Base Salary for House of Representatives- $76,000.00
Did I mention that in addition to their salary they are entitled to $158.00 each day they show up for work in Harrisburg to pay for meals? Did I mention that if someone picks up their meals they are still entitled to $158.00 for the day? That's because I didn't. Brad Bumstead over at the Pittsburgh Tribune Review wrote an excellent piece on the subject.
