Data compiled by Legistorm finds three Senate Republican freshmen among the top 10 best-paying solons in the upper chamber of Congress, according to a report published just before the Christmas break.
“Among representatives serving their first terms, Rep. Ross Spano (R-Fla.) topped the staff salary list at a median of $61,162. Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-Ill.) was the highest paying Democratic freshman, with a median office salary of $60,000,” Legistorm reported.
“Freshmen legislators for both the House and Senate steered clear of high office turnover compared to peers, according to the LegiStorm staff turnover index. None of the freshmen made the list of top 10 offices with the highest turnover,” the legislative data analysis firm said.
