Is serving in the Legislature a full-time job?

A California state lawmaker wants to turn the state legislature into a part-time gig. We have the same debate in Pennsylvania. State legislators earn a starting salary of $82,000 a year (up to $150,000 when you factor in benefits) for what many believe is a part-time job. And we have the largest full-time legislature in the country, so taxpayers pick up an annal tab of $300 million to fund the Legislature
It still should be a full-time job
