Legislative Compensation Commission

Interim Committee Studies and Assignments

North Dakota Century Code Section 54-03-19.1 provides that the Legislative Compensation Commission shall:

  • Consist of five members appointed by the Governor with no more than three members representing the same political party.
  • Develop recommendations for a long-term policy on legislative compensation, expense allowance, and insurance benefits.
  • Recommend appropriate levels of legislative compensation, expense allowance, and insurance benefits.

North Dakota Century Code Section 54-03-19.2 provides that the Legislative Compensation Commission must meet at least once each biennium to determine levels of legislative compensation, expense allowance, and insurance benefits which permit citizens to hold legislative office without undue financial sacrifice or disadvantage. The commission may consult with the leadership of the Legislative Assembly and review compensation, expense allowance, and insurance benefits for legislative service in other states and in other areas. The commission is to report its findings and recommendations regarding legislative compensation to the Legislative Assembly, and the commission may file with the Legislative Management a bill incorporating its recommendations.
