Senate Bill 1146 — Industrial commission, members, salary

Senate Bill 1146 — Industrial commission, members, salary

Parrish Miller
March 7, 2023

Bill Description: Senate Bill 1146 would benefit members of the Idaho Industrial Commission, which is a state regulatory agency, tying their salaries to those of magistrate judges, giving the commissioners a 13% raise.

Rating: -1

Does it increase government spending (for objectionable purposes) or debt? Conversely, does it decrease government spending or debt?

Senate Bill 1146 would amend Section 72-503, Idaho Code, to tie the salaries of industrial commissioners to those of magistrate judges, which would increase the commissioners’ salaries from $117,044 to $132,400, for an increase of more than 13%.

Additionally, if the salaries of magistrate judges are ever increased, the industrial commissioners would receive a corresponding raise.

There is no logical reason to link the salaries of unrelated officials, and there is no need to provide disproportionately large raises to Idaho's industrial commissioners.
