      and $153/day per diem doesn't go that far in Santa Fe during the 2 months of the year they are in session.  It actually COSTS money to serve as a state legislator, because during the session the schedule is intense and anyone with a real job must take leave of absence from it.

      The advantage, if any, is all in croneyism and connections.  The legislators private business activities often seem to get a mysterious boost.
