​California Citizen's Compensation Commission

​​Passed by voters in June 1990, Proposition 112 established the Commission to set the salaries and medical, dental, insurance and other similar benefits of Members of the Legislature and the State's other elected officials. In May 2009, voters passed Proposition 1F, which prevents the Commission from increasing elected officials' salaries during budget deficit years.

The Commission has seven members, appointed by the Governor for six-year terms. It is required to meet by June 30 of each year to decide what changes to make, if any, the following December. Actions of the Commission are effective on a December-to-December basis.
