The salaries of Pennsylvania state lawmakers, judges and top executive branch officials, including Gov. Tom Wolf, will rise in 2018. The increase is 0.8 percent, a figure tied by law to the year-over-year change in the consumer price index for urban consumers in the mid-Atlantic region. The bump takes effect Dec. 1 for lawmakers and Jan. 1 for judicial and executive branch officials. Highest-paid is state Supreme Court Chief Justice Tom Saylor. His salary will rise by about $1,600 to $213,750. Wolf’s salary will rise about $1,500 to $194,850, although his office says he donates the money.
