Carter lawmakers paid, reimbursed $121,761 in 2012

March 13, 2013 — Two members of the Kentucky General Assembly who represent Carter County received a total of $121,761 in salary and reimbursed expenses during 2012.

Figures for all 138 legislators are published online by the Legislative Research Commission (LRC), the staff arm of the General Assembly.

Sen. Robin Webb, D-Grayson, received a total of $63,324, including $25,033 in salary and $38,291 in expenses.

Her senatorial district includes Carter and five other counties.

State Rep. Jill York, R-Grayson, was paid a total of $58,437, including $22,963 in salary and $35,474 in expenses.

York represents Carter and Lewis counties.

Kentucky lawmakers receive a salary and expense allowance for each day they are in session and for each day they conduct official business between sessions.

They also are reimbursed for trips between their homes and the Capitol, in addition to a stationery allowance for correspondence with their constituents.

Individual salary and expense figures and other legislative expenditures are available on the LRC’s Web site — — under a tab labeled "Legislative Branch Expenditures."

The site provides data on the legislative branch budget, its expenditures, personal service contracts, employee salaries and legislator salaries and expenses.

For individual lawmakers, the site lists yearly totals of travel expenditures but it does not include a breakdown of specific expenses.
