Description and Holding Information
House. Act fixing compensation for legislators and others, 1826
H.R.-No. 7 An act fixing the compensation of Counsellors, Senators, and Representatives and equalizing the expenses of legislation, 1826. Each member
was to be paid $2/day plus $2 for every 20 miles of travel. The President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House each were to receive an extra
$2/day. As an example, if a town were constitutionally authorized to send four representatives to the General Court, the state would pay the salaries
for two of them, but the town must pay the salaries of the other two. Towns beginning with N through Z who were authorized to send one representative
were expected to pay the salary of that person in the even numbered years, i.e., 1826; the state would pay for the odd years. It was not possible to
move the page up the screen to see its remainder, but it likely said: Other towns A-M with a single representative were to pay the expenses during odd
years; the state would pay for even years. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
