Legislative Pay in All States

For a table showing how much state legislators make in each of the 50 states, see here.

The other day, I posted on a situation with regard to legislative pay in California that I considered to be unconscionable. Legislators there received per diem travel and meal allowances even though they never travelled and ate or attended a single legislative session the entire term. However, it occurs to me many of these salaries are too low. While no one should expect to get rich serving in a state legislature, some of these pay packages simply do not reflect the amount of time and effort that is required to serve.
