Pennsylvania's Constitution Article II Section 8

Section 8. Compensation.
The members of the General Assembly shall receive such salary and mileage for regular and special sessions as shall be fixed by law, and no other compensation whatever, whether for service upon committee or otherwise. No member of either House shall during the term for which he may have been elected, receive any increase of salary, or mileage, under any law passed during such term.

Nowhere is there a provision for per diems, pensions, healthcare benefits, cellphones, or state paid cars. It is time our legislators obey the law.
