Members of the Connecticut General Assembly earn $28,000 a year by statute, but more than half of them have leadership titles raising average salaries in the House by $3,000 and in the Senate by nearly $5,500.
None of the 36 senators get paid the base salary. Chairmen and ranking members of committees earn additional pay and since there are 26 committees all senators get at least one top spot.
