State politicians face 1.8 percent pay reduction

For the second time in ­recent years, state politicians face a pay cut, an automatic reduct­ion triggered by the declin­ing income of households in Massachusetts.

Members of the House and Senate will see a 1.8 percent drop in pay this year, as will the governor and lieutenant governor, treasurer, attorney general, auditor, and secretary of state. The governor’s salary is expected to drop to about $137,315.
