Group challanges 'per diem' payments to lawmakers

Minneapolis attorney Erick Kaardal announced a press conference today at 2:00 p.m. at the State Capitol Rotunda for his client Citizens for Rule of Law. The lawsuit, filed today, seeks to stop “per diem” overcompensation to individual state legislators as a violation of the state and federal constitutions, according to a press release sent out this morning.

The defendants are: Senate Committee on Rules and Administration; House Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration; Senate Fiscal Services; House Budgeting and Accounting; and Compensation Council and State of Minnesota.

The press conference is part of Rule of Law Day at the Capitol sponsored by Citizens for Rule of Law and Neopopulism.org.
