The annual Senate payroll is now $63.2 million, up from $60.3 million at the end of last year, state records show.

Senate GOP spokesman John McArdle said at the same time the Dems cut funding for the Republican minority by 58%.

“They have decided this is about patronage, this is about building a political organization with government funds,” McArdle said.
