The Constitution of 1876 originally set the salaries for the officers in the executive branch of the state government. The governor received $4,000 annually; the attorney general, $2,000, plus fees not to exceed $2,000; the secretary of state, $2,000; and the comptroller of public accounts, the state treasurer, and the commissioner of the General Land Office, $2,500 each. In 1936 the constitution was amended to provide the following annual salaries: governor, $12,000; attorney general, $10,000; and other executive officials, $6,000 each. Constitutional stipulation of salaries received by executive officers was removed by a series of constitutional amendments in 1954, and the legislature was empowered to determine them. In 1968 state executive salaries were as follows: governor, $40,000; attorney general, $27,500; commissioner of the General Land Office, $26,000; secretary of state, $19,000; and comptroller of public accounts and state treasurer, $26,000 each. In 1972 a constitutional amendment, effective in 1975, increased the terms of the executive officers from two to four years. In 1973 salaries again increased as follows: governor, $63,000; attorney general, $33,000; commissioner of the General Land Office, $33,000; secretary of state, $29,500; and comptroller of public accounts and state treasurer, $33,000 each. Generally, compensation has been increased every two years; the following annual salaries were paid during the fiscal year 1977: governor, $66,800; attorney general, commissioner of the General Land Office, comptroller of public accounts, and state treasurer, all $42,300; and secretary of state, $39,900. The lieutenant governor, although a part of the executive branch, does not have any executive functions; his annual salary is the same as that paid to members of the legislature. By 1991 the governor's salary had increased to $93,432. The offices of attorney general, land commissioner, comptroller, and state treasurer each paid $74,698, while the secretary of state received $72,549.
