ST. PAUL - Gov. Mark Dayton is encouraging all eligible Minnesotans to apply for one of the eight current vacancies on the Legislative Salary Council. The council was created upon Minnesota’s voters passing the Constitutional Amendment, and this citizens-only council will prescribe salaries for legislators.

Dayton will appoint eight Minnesotans to this council, which will include one appointee from each congressional district. Four members must be Democrats and four members must be Republicans. Additionally, none of the members of the council may be a current or former legislator, or the spouse of a current legislator; a current or former lobbyist registered under Minnesota law; a current employee of the legislature; a current or former judge; or a current or former governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state or state auditor.
To apply, submit an application, cover letter and resume through the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website, sos.state.mn.us. Applicants must disclose their party affiliation on the application form. The deadline to apply and receive full consideration is Dec. 5.
