Minnesota voters overwhelmingly approved a state constitutional amendment in November creating the Legislative Salary Council, an independent body charged with setting legislative salaries. In March, the council set salaries at $45,000 per year, up from $31,140. The Senate accepted the salary hike, but House Speaker Kurt Daudt disagreed. Two legislators sued, alleging that Daudt had violated the state Constitution by not approving the higher salaries. He then reversed course and accepted the pay raises.
