A state board thinks Missouri politicians need a raise.

The Citizen’s Commission on Compensation for Elected Officials, a 21-member bipartisan group, voted Thursday for a 5 percent bump for statewide elected officials and members of the General Assembly.

If the legislature doesn’t object, the increases would be phased in over the next two years.

By fiscal year 2023, the governor would make $140,596, up nearly $6,800 from the current rate.

That would be the 29th-highest base salary among all state governors, according to data from the Council of State Governments.

California’s governor is the highest paid at just over $200,000 per year; Maine’s is the lowest at $70,000 per year.
