Missouri Lt Gov Peter Kinder Is Requesting a Daily Allowance

Peter Kinder

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder wants even more money for doing his job.

The Republican is asking legislators to allocate money in the budget for a “daily expense allowance” when he is working in Jefferson City.

Kinder lives in Cape Girardeau but maintains a second home in Jefferson City.

His annual salary is about $86,000 but Kinder claims he has experienced “gradual impoverishment” during his time in office.

His salary happens to be less than other statewide executive officials, but well over the $36,000 that legislators receive.

One of Kinder’s duties is to preside over the Senate. He is pushing to receive the same allowance that legislators get, which is $103 a day. He’s seeking a per diem whenever he’s in Jefferson City, not just when the Legislature meets.
