Governor Kasich earns $148,165 a year, $10,000 more than what his predecessor, Democrat Ted Strickland earned, and he is eligible to receive automatic 3% “step increases.”

Gov. Kasich’s twenty-seven cabinet members earn an average pay of more than $131,000. At least twenty-two of them receive an extra $6,000 annual car allowance. At least seven cabinet members are on government pensions in addition to receiving their salaries.

Among the seventy representatives and senators who voted for SB 5, only eight earn the least legislative salary. The remaining 62 receive “leadership bonuses” ranging from $5,000 to $34,000 annually. The average bonus is $8,600.

Twelve House and Senate members are double dippers; one is a triple dipper. House Speaker William Batchelder (R-Medina) receives over $100,000 in PERS pension, in addition to his legislative salary of $94,500.

Members of the General Assembly receive unlimited sick pay for any reason.
