The state’s Citizens Compensation Commission voted to give legislators and other elected officials a 2.75 percent pay hike. 
Governor Schwarzenegger’s new salary will be just over
212-thousand dollars…though the multi-millionaire doesn’t take the money.  Lawmakers will be paid about 116-thousand a year. 
The Attorney General and the Superintendent of Public Instruction will get a bigger raise….they’ll get a five percent hike, which will bring their salaries to more than 184-thousand.  All of the increases will take effect December third.   This marks the third year in a row elected officials have received a raise.  The independent commission was formed in 1990 by voters.
