Each year in the Legislature, Kevin gave up $40,000 in annual income by declining the per diem allowance, declined a pay raise granted to the governor and legislature in 2021, and also introduced legislation to end special perks like a private DMV office that is available exclusively to state lawmakers and their staff.
