Legislative Pensions

Bob Bernick Jr. wrote an article in the Deseret News today that got me thinking. According to his story, Utah legislators receive $10.00/month as pension for every year they serve. So, if they were to retire this year, who of our current legislators would get the biggest pension according to Bob Bernick? Senate President John Valentine has been in the legislature since 1988 and so would recieve $160.00/month. House Speaker Greg Curtis has been in the legislature since 1994 and has earned $110/month. The big winner is Senator Lyle Hillyard, first elected in 1980. $250.00/month. UPDATE: As Brian pointed out, Democratic Senator Mike Dmitrich was first elected to the legislature in 1968. If he's been in the legislature every year since then, his pension would be $370.00/month. I got the election dates of the legislators from the Legislative Guide published by The Exoro Group.

I believe that Sen. Dmitrich was first elected to the House in 1968.
