Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod announced today that in light of the current budget situation, she will not be accepting the pay increase granted by an independent citizen's commission.

The Governor has declared a fiscal emergency and called the legislature into special session to address the budget crisis.

"That is why I am instructing the Secretary of the Senate and the State Controller to immediately rescind my recent salary increase approved by the California Citizens Compensation Commission," Senator Negrete McLeod said.  "The Legislature and the Governor have to come together to make some tough decisions on how best to bring the state's budget back into balance.  We are all going to have to tighten our belts this year."

Senator Negrete McLeod is one of twenty-two legislators declining the pay hike.
