A citizen committee has recommended a pay raise of 2 percent for legislators. According to the Idaho Statesman, legislators have not had one since 2007. One member of the committee said she believed since state workers got a 2 percent raise, the legislators should as well.

Also recommended by the committee was strengthening the rules on using second residences for per diem and benefits. It was a hot topic this year during the session, as former Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell, and Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, were shown to be abusing the rules.
