State Lawmakers Give Andrew Cuomo A Big Pay Raise

State lawmakers voted early Monday to hike Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s salary to $250,000 by 2021.

The Senate approved the pay raise for Cuomo and Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul at 2:45 a.m. and the Assembly followed at 7 a.m.

Under the measure, Cuomo’s $200,000 salary this year will increase to $225,000 in 2020 and $250,000 in 2021, which would make him the highest-paid governor in the nation.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s $202,000 salary makes him the highest-paid for now.

Cuomo could not increase his salary on his own.

Hochul’s pay will jump from $190,000 to $220,000 in 2021.

The state Compensation Committee recommends the pay hikes for Cuomo and Hochul as part of an increase for lawmakers that took effect on Jan. 1.

The committee voted in December to increase lawmakers’ salaries from $79,500 to $130,000 over three years.
