NASHVILLE — An automatic increase is giving state legislators a pay boost.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported the increase of about 6.28 percent took effect Nov. 6 — the day of the general election. The new salary for lawmakers is $20,203 and it will remain fixed until the 108th Tennessee General Assembly ends in November 2014.

A 2005 statute requires automatic increases in lawmakers’ pay every two years, based on raises given to state employees during that time.

The same statute calls for the House and Senate speakers to make three times what other legislators receive.

In addition, members of the legislature get $1,000 per month for a home office and a daily rate of $173 when they are meeting. They are also paid mileage for travel from home.
