SACRAMENTO (KGO) -- California's economy is booming and that means the state's elected leaders are in line for a modest raise.
The citizen's committee that sets salaries for elected officials okayed a four-percent pay bump for Governor Gavin Newsom. His salary goes up from $202,000 to $211,000 in December.
Legislators and other elected officials will also get a four-percent raise.
The committee justified the raises by saying the state's economy is strong, and the cost of living is rising.
Raises approved for Governor Newsom, other elected officials
