Why not volunteer yourself and your fellow state senators to go without your salaries until the budget impasse is over?
Seems like you are the few working for the government who could actually afford to go without for a few pay periods.
Especially since your decree will probably not save any money, since the bean counters who implement payroll changes will need to work some serious overtime to make this happen. Because they are working with an antiquated payroll system.
