HARRISBURG — The salaries of Pennsylvania state lawmakers, judges and top executive branch officials, including Gov. Tom Wolf, will rise in 2018.
The increase is 0.8 percent, a figure tied by law to the year-over-year change in the consumer price index for urban consumers in the mid-Atlantic region.

The bump takes effect Dec. 1 for lawmakers and Jan. 1 for judicial and executive branch officials.

Most lawmakers, already the nation’s second-highest paid, will see an increase of about $700 to almost $87,200 in base pay. They also receive per diems, while lawmakers in leadership posts will top out at $136,000.
