ARTICLE II
TIE SALARIES TO THE NATIONAL MEDIAN INCOME
 

DESCRIPTION:
  Currently, the base pay for a rank-and-file member of Congress is $174,000 per year, which equates to about 330% of the national median income (~$52,000 per year). This clause would lock in that percentage including cost of living adjustments.GOAL:
  To institute performance-based salaries that elected officials cannot raise on their own. This way, if elected officials want to raise their own pay, they will only be able to do so by increasing the pay of regular people. In this case, for every dollar that the national median income increases or decreases, congressional pay increases or decreases by $3.30.

ARTICLE III
MANDATORY DRUG TESTS
 

DESCRIPTION:
   This clause requires every elected or appointed public official to submit to random drug tests similar to those administered to members of the armed forces. The only difference will be that elected officials will not be required to abstain from substances that are legal in the jurisdiction of the office held by that official. For example, a California State Legislator will not be tested for marijuana since the substance is legal in that state, whereas a United States Senator from California will be prohibited from using marijuana due to the federal ban on the substance.GOAL:
   To hold elected officials accountable to the laws that they pass.
