Iowa Lawmakers Seek to Penalize Judges for Ruling

A group of Iowa Republican lawmakers have attached an amendment to a judicial branch budget bill that would reduce the salaries of the four remaining justices who were part of the groundbreaking case to legalize same-sex marriage in the state, the Sioux City Journal reports.

Their salaries would be reduced from about $163,000 annually to $25,000, the amount legislators are paid.

Said state Rep. Larry Sheets (R): "If the justices are going to behave like legislators, they ought to receive lawmakers' pay."
