Political Science Salaries in North Dakota

The North Dakota state government's human resources department recently assessed the annual earnings of comparable elected bureaucrats in ten other states and came up with a plan giving more than ten elected officials in North Dakota a salary increase. Strangely, the lieutenant governor of North Dakota's pay was the only one not increased. The plan going forward is for the annual earnings of North Dakota politicians to be fixed at the middle of the incomes of comparable officials of the ten states to which they were originally compared. This assessment and fixation would occur every two years.
