State lawmakers in Kansas are among the worst paid in the country.  In a recent article from the Economist, salaries for Kansas state lawmakers rank in the bottom ten. 

There are four states where legislators make less than their Kansas peers.  They are:  Montana, Alabama, New Hampshire, and New Mexico.  Lawmakers in New Mexico are not paid. 

More than a third of state legislatures are part-time.  Texas, Montana, Nevada, and North Dakota meet every second year.  Part-time legislatures cost less, and they also tend to spend less.
