    As a failure of the California education system who has still become somewhat educated I hold this area very personal.

    Is it possible to make petition to make the pay of state and federal representatives proportionate to that states teachers of equivalent experience. I'm more interested in the legality and due process behind it, but I'm sure everyone will add there two cents. Thank you for your time.

    Yes I did get my GED and have spent a year in collage and going back as soon as the new legislation comes into play with regards to student federal loans. Jsut so you don't think I'm THAT uneducated.:tongue:

    And I just saw two I made as I came back.

    But is it plausible?

    LOl.

    Plausible? I have no idea, but I imagine you would be hard pressed to get the lawmakers to agree to the idea.

    That why I said a petition as oppose through the regular legislative process. My understanding is that you have to get X amount of signatures for something to be put on the ballot. My inquiry is more along the lines of the specifics of that process. Are there restrictions cause it deal with budget? Are there more steps cause it deals with pay? I'm very limited in my knowledge of this.

    Yes, it would be legal to pass a law in California to tie state legislators' pay to anything you want. The question is, why would you want to?

    I don't know precisely what's required in California for their initiative process, but the California Secretary of State's office can tell you.

    California could connect the pay of legislators to teachers pay, howver, they could NOT tie it to federal offices as that is out of their jurisdiction
